Luciana Lamothe

Born in 1975 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Luciana Lamothe works with sculpture, drawing, installation, photography and video, using architecture as a tool to show social values subjected to the rigidity of vertical structures where control, patriarchal hegemony and strongly established cultural models predominate and influence the idea of gender. Lamothe creates artworks that challenge these preconceptions and asks the viewers to establish a relation with their own bodies, the exhibition space and the materials of the works. The sculptures often trigger instability and vertigo as a metaphor of the fragility of socially established structures. The brutalist and minimal aesthetics of the sculptures, installations and drawings often contrast with the extremely fine and delicate forms of the works.
The artist is currently representing Argentina at the 60th Venice Biennale Arte 2024 'Foreigners Everywhere' with the project 'Ojalá se derrumben las puertas', curated by Sofía Dourron.
