‘I think the way I look at things has been influenced by my experiences as a child, especially in these early pieces. I was an only child, so I spent a lot of time alone. Being a lonely girl was also very enriching for me, for my sensibility and my perception of things, which I saw with the eyes of a child whose gaze was being transformed. Isn’t it childish to want to cut a wave? The easiest way to put this idea into practice was to take a Perspex sheet, stick it in the sand, wait for a wave, then shoot. It means that at that precise moment I cut a wave. Yes, I did cut it.’ As Àngels Ribé explained in an interview for Radio Web MACBA in 2012, Intersecció d’onada (Wave Intersection, 1969), one of her earlier works, denotes a very close, almost immediate, relationship with nature.

To reconstruct the disorder of a possible city. To use the model, not as an element in a project, but as the representation of something that already exists.
