Luciana Lamothe

Apr 2013 to Jun 2013
1975 Mercedes, Argentina

Luciana Lamothe was selected for a residency of three months in the lock-keeper’s house.

Her work extends into sculpture, assemblage and installation, joins the aesthetics of vandalism to the legacy of conceptual artistic practice. Her work interrogates the dialectical relationships between construction and destruction, the social and the anti-social, and – possibly unintentionally – the revolutionary and the merely destructive. Lamothe’s spaces and their constitutent element used to construct them, also reveal a concern for materialism. She considers her visual art, and subsequent gateways, to be an attack of the excesses of consumerism and materialism in modern Argentinian society.
