Steegmann Mangrané's (2020), presented at Taipei Biennial 2020, proposes an interplay between fullness and void, continuity and interruption, which appeals to transit states. The Kriska aluminum curtains, originally used in the south of Catalunya where the artist spent his childhood, are light and brightly coloured, and they make a characteristic metallic sound when you walk through them. The cutout holes in the curtains came from a catalogue of forms that invite the imagination to recognise them but resist any clear interpretation. The public can either go through these openings or traverse the curtains.

For the Taipei Biennial, the curtains pretend to dissolve in the host architecture, while still offering a sharp and subtle contrast to its imposing geometry. The curtains divide the space into different sections, creating a space that dematerializes as the visitors move through it, thereby making the transient essence of the work. According to the artist, these curtains of chains form so many environments of different pressures as visitors exit the exhibition.
