From the 16th September till the 1st November 2014 the Gallery Ivorypress in Madrid hosted Maya Lin's first solo exhibition in Spain, entitled Rivers and Mountains.
The show took place in the cycle around art in relation with architecture and design that Ivorypress presents annually in Madrid each September.

Maya Lin is an American artist and architectural designer who approaches in her works landscapes from an environmentally conscious perspective, outlining a critical reflection on the negative consequences of humankind’s carbon footprint. The exhibition presents works and projects produced in the past decade together with site-specific works. Factum Arte collaborated with the artist and with Ivorypress to create the works which have been produced specifically for the exhibition.
This is the case of the two Pyrenees tables, 2014, made of wood and the other one of marble. Together they emulate the Pyrenean mountain chain.

In addition to the two big Pyrenees tables Factum Arte has also been commissioned to produce two smaller works: Aneto Glaciar and Maladeta Glaciar. They are both inspired by the Pyrenean mountain chain; they are both Macael marble over wooden base.

The work Cloudline: Everest at 20,000ft also exhibited at Ivory Press during Rivers and Mountains has been realized in Factum Arte. Various Cardboards have been laser cut and finally assembled in layers 1.5mm thick to recreate the Mount Everest. The work is made of resin, paper and wood.
