Anna Maria Maiolino

(Italy, 1942)



Installed in the Children’s Museum/Museo de los Niños in downtown San Diego, Anna Maria Maiolino’s work was a mass collection of clay coils placed in random piles around the room. Using similar forms and processes from her previous work, There Could Be Many More Than These/Podria haber muchos mas que estos focused on the gesture and repetition used to create the clay coils. Molded over the course of several weeks, the number of coils was finite, but the infinite nature of the gesture creating them made the installation an act of chance.
