I Am All the Selves that I Have Been presents a number of aspects that are central to Fina Miralles’ oeuvre: the relationship between nature and artifice, the language we use to express ourselves and the relations of power in our everyday lives.  

'Being an artist isn't a vocation, a devotion or a profession; you're not aware of it, but everything pushes you towards it and drives you to being who you are.' With these words, Fina Miralles sums up her life.

The book includes essays by Tamara Díaz Bringas, Maite Garbayo-Maeztu, Teresa Grandas and Valentín Roma, and a wide selection of her work.

Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
