COMPRESSIONS

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.

We develop materially ephemeral settings and objects designed to engage utopian ideas in art, architecture and design by incorporating everyday materials and forms of play and participation. From make-shift architectural modifications of public and semi-public spaces—cinemas, a library, galleries—to constructing temporary environments and objects, our works are products of precisely specified processes while also responding to their sites. Many of our spaces and objects are activated—meant to be moved and inhabited, privileging play and bodily engagement over vision. Artworks become proposals, maquettes, or models—exploratory assertions of radical possibilities.
