Haughty is a work created for the FMCMP headquarters in Madrid. It is the first time that Blanca Muñoz has made a hanging piece, a decision that was conditioned by the place where it was to be installed, the Foundation’s entry lobby.
Blanca Muñoz is one of the most important sculptors in Spain who primarily works in stainless steel.
Haughty is a piece made of perforated steel sheeting which appears suspended, defying gravity. Its fluid, organic shapes make it seem extraordinarily light despite the material it is made from. The faint hues covering the work create an iridescent look which changes colour depending on the light it reflects, and therefore it varies depending on the viewer’s vantage point.
