Object Description: Willys de Castro combined his experience as a concrete artist and designer to create artworks that invite a more active participation of the viewer. "Pluriobjeto" exists in an in-between space: Its minimal, interlocking shapes made with industrial materials lay flat against the wall. Only after viewers engage in closer examination of the work do they see how the object reaches into the space of the gallery. This hybrid of painting and sculpture challenges the separation between virtual and real space.
