Renata Lucas at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin.
12.09.10 – 07.11.2010
Brazilian artist Renata Lucas usually works with already existing situations. Based on fictions, she intervenes into found landscapes and architectures making the background become the main character. Her displacements cause spaces to become the main focus of attention revealing their deeper structures and proposing meaningful transformations. In her new work she creates a geometric alteration at the extremes of the terrain of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, destabilizing its boundaries and crossing its thresholds.
Renata Lucas (born 1971 in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil) was awarded the Ernst Schering Foundation Art Award 2009. With the presentation of two artworks specially made for KW Institute for Contemporary Art she will debut her work in Germany.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the Ernst Schering Foundation and KW Institute for Contemporary Art.
