Lucia Bru's sculptural installations are a delicate dialogue between the vulnerability of the naked object and the surrounding space in which it tries to find its place. Spatial details—be they real or virtually abstract concepts—are isolated, accentuated, and elaborated in an object. They are given a monumentality, which destabilises the viewer and makes them more aware of their own body in time and space.Read More
In disciplines including both sculpture and drawings, Bru creates her own unique form language, based on pure geometrical laws, yet distorted by the reality of her own body. She consciously adds human insecurity to geometrical structures, which lends a special narrative power to her abstract, visual vocabulary. Her objects are small incarnations of human vulnerability; they are a breath in abstract space.
