Galeria Luciana Brito, Sao Paulo
September 4 – October 22, 2016
Departing from Brazilian architect Rino Levi’s concept of a living room compressed between two layers of tropical garden, screens of corrugated extensible cardboard create semitransparent barriers in the exhibition space. The flexible honeycomb cardboard used widely in the furniture industry as a filling material in door construction is manipulated by subtle compressions. Wooden laundry clips are used to develop playful visual distortions and at the same time control transparency of the panels. The show installation features 13 honeycomb panels suspended from the ceiling redefining Levi’s house “living room” space and directing visitors’ view onto the garden.
