Chillida: The Depth of Air

View on the Pragda STREAM site

At the age of 19, Eduardo Chillida (1942-2002) was a gifted athlete set to become a football legend. However, a severe injury during a match saw him move away from professional sport. At the time, nobody except for his life-long partner, Pilar Belzunce, could ever imagine that the young goalkeeper from Hernani was at the verge of re-writing his destiny.

Chillida would die a few decades later as one of the most prominent sculptors of the 20th century.

Lo profundo es el aire is not a conventional biography, but the poetic and fast-paced reminiscence of an unparalleled artist. Chillida’s personality is perpetuated through his work, his eight children, and some of his closest collaborators.
