Eduarda Maino (Dadamaino) made series of Volumes which were canvases in usually single colour from where the holes have been cut. Influenced by Lucio Fontana’s Spatial Concept series these works were trying to introduce space and depth while without using materiality. Dadamaino seem to have to chosen to work with the immaterial, the opening in the matter, the air in space.


The sculpture that is in Tate Modern is is made from a child’s doll, cast in bronze in which the base on which it rests is the cone through which the bronze was poured, while the nails originally held the mould together. In the background Hans Bellmer’s doll photos previously posted. Miro keeps violence and humour somehow connected in this work.
