Renata Lucas

November 21 – January 25, 2014

Renata Lucas’s works examine how the built environment informs social relations and actions. The artist considers structural elements as language of a space, thus in site-specific interventions, she manipulates architectural structures to deconstruct socially defined spaces and their uses and test novel and playful possibilities. By way of addition, duplication, or superimposition, she designs subtle modifications that suggest alternative perceptions of a place.


Renata Lucas, born in Ribeirão Preto (Brazil) in 1971, lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.
