Chillida Leku is a unique museum, and itself a great work of art. Nature and art naturally come together in the space. The sculptures are integrated into the landscape as though they had always been part of it. In the garden, beech, oak and magnolia trees live alongside the monumental steel and granite sculptures, situated in a perfect dialogue with their surroundings. Whereas the works are monumental, the place is made on a human scale. This is how the artist always worked, using the person as the measure of his creation.
Chillida Leku is designed as a large open space that can be traversed in different ways. There is no one route through it. True to the artist’s philosophy, the visitor can be guided through the space by their own intuition, following the “scent” of the works. In referring to his own work process, Chillida himself was “guided by a scent.”
