“A Room and a Half” is the first solo exhibition of Brazilian artist Laura Lima; the show evolves around the margins of the visitors’ perception and it blurrs the differences between reality and illusion. It invites visitors to be part of a situation that escapes rational logic staying on the edge of an understatement and a joke.
“Laura Lima creates situations or images in which she then places living beings – humans or animals – for the duration of the exhibition. Although Lima‘s projects have some performative aspects, the artist stubbornly avoids such expressions as “performance” or “installation” as there are no narrative moments, scripts, or even endings in her work. There are also no attempts or aspirations to create choreographies of movements.”
