(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
PIPA Prize 2011 nominee Lucia Koch presents, starting this Saturday, December 3rd, the exhibition “Fundos” [in a free translation, “Backgrounds”], at Studio-X Rio. The spot is one of the Latin American bases of the homonymous project run by the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation of Columbia University. Coordinating eight other laboratories spread all over the planet, the project aims to explore the future of cities. An investigation that has everything to do with Koch’s work, focused in transforming the way people experience the space that surrounds them.
Koch will be exhibiting five works, all produced between 2011 and 2016. One of them, the “Sin Fin” series, was created in collaboration with architects, a habitual practice of the artist. In this case, the professionals were Beto Salvi and Tuti Giorgi, of the Salvi, Giorgi studio, and Marcos Acayaba, who will be present in the opening. The last work, “SKY-X”, consists on a permanent installation in the building skylight: by attaching a filter to it, the artist changed the color of the light that now fills up Studio-X. Other artworks include two pieces from the original “Fundos” series.
The exhibition is on view until March 31st, 2017.
