Lives in Milan
Luisa Lambri is a photographer of light and architecture who reenacts the experience of space, not from a documentary but from an emotional point of view. The focus of her research is not architecture in itself but the subjective and emotional perception of a place or an environment in relation to the artist’s own memory.
In the photographs taken from the series Untitled (The Met Breuer) (2016) and Untitled (Gropius House #10) (2005), portraying Modernism is an opportunity to conquer its formal language by means of a gaze that focuses on details isolated from their context that reconstruct a feminine vision in a world built by men. The images from the series Ambiente spaziale (Spatial Environment, 2012), portray the famous cuts by Lucio Fontana, transforming them – only through photography – into spatial environments. Lambri builts a new relation between subject and space, lets the invisible emerge and, as with the architectural elements, opens up the gaze to new depths.
