Milan - Exhibition

Lygia Pape

Fondazione Carriero

28 Mar 201921 Jul 2019

The exhibition at Fondazione Carriero recollects Brazilian artist Lygia Pape‘s forty-five-year career, which embraced different languages – from drawing to sculpture, video to dance, ranging into installation and photography – resulting in an original signature language. Pape absorbed the foundations of European modernism, blending it with the ones of her home country’s culture; her practice, gives the human figure a central role and opens up to a sensual language, which stimulate all the senses to the point of reinventing the relationship between work and viewer.

Between the highlights of the exhibition, “Livro Noite e Dia” and “Livro da Criação”, among her most important pieces, the “Tecelares” series of engravings on wood, which combine Brazilian traditional craftsmanship with the Constructivist research and “Tteia1”, a distinguished installation that embodies Lygia Pape’s investigation of materials.
