For the occasion of her first solo show in Italy, the artist has designed a project specifically conceived for the Milanese pavilion. The relationship between her photographs and the space in which they are exhibited is an integral part of Lambri’s work.
The title of Lambri’s exhibition at PAC pays homage to the eminent art critic Carla Lonzi who, before devoting herself exclusively to feminist politics, published a series of interviews with fourteen artists from the 1960s avant-garde under the title “Autoritratto” (Self-Portrait) (1969).
The project for PAC focuses on the relationship between Lambri’s works and the architecture of Ignazio Gardella. The photographs on display become a true extension of the exhibition space, making the architecture and the subjective experience of the visitor an integral part of the artist’s work. In these photographs ( made between 1999 and 2017) she enters into intimate dialogues with works by artists such as Donald Judd, Robert Irwin, Lygia Clark and Lucio Fontana, as well as architects Álvaro Siza, Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe, Luis Barragán, Rudolph Schindler, Paulo Mendes da Rocha and Giuseppe Terragni, among others.
