Specialized in promoting exchanges between Europe and Latin America, London-based gallery LAMB Arts opens tomorrow, July 6th, two solo shows by former PIPA Prize nominees: “White Flag”, by Carla Chaim, nominated in 2016, and “Working System”, by Ding Musa, who participated in the Prize in 2012.
While Chaim is primarily concerned with her artistic process rather than its final outcome – many of her pieces are recordings of her body as it performs actions such as drawing on the walls or stepping on imbalanced structures –, Musa’s research is focused on the limitations of space, a theme he explores through photography and installations. Chaim shows a series of works based on the practice of non-figurative origami; she employs the folding and unfolding of paper as a way of transforming two-dimensional support into a three-dimensional object. “White Flag” is centrepiece of the show and plays with the idea of transforming the architectural space of the gallery’s by ‘folding the floor.’ The papers displayed have been cut in imitation of the floor plan and folded in 16 different ways. In parallel to Chaim’s exhibition, Ding Musa’s works in “Working System”explore how photography as a visual language deals with representation in the gallery’s cave space.
Both exhibitions can be visited through September 9th.
