Mostra doppia personale.
ALMA ZEVI is proud to announce the first two-person exhibition of Luisa Lambri (b. 1969, Como) and Bijoy Jain/ Studio Mumbai (b. 1965, Mumbai). Both have created new work on the occasion, using photography and sculpture respectively. Lambri and Jain have participated in multiple Venice Art and Architecture Biennales (Lambri in 1999, 2003, 2004 and 2010, winning the Golden Lion in 1999; Jain in 2010 and 2016).
For their exhibition at ALMA ZEVI, Luisa Lambri and Bijoy Jain have made new work that responds to one another and to Venice as a city
This reactivity to particular spaces is something that resonates profoundly within Bijoy Jain’s work. His practice engages with materials to find new ways of transforming them into forms in space. The result is found in his exquisitely proportioned volumes that allow atmosphere to seamlessly pass through them. Jain founded his practice, Studio Mumbai, in 2005. The endeavour of his practice is to find ways to engage in the diverse possibilities and extend outside the limits of language, geography, culture. For this exhibition, Jain has taken inspiration from Venice by integrating gold leafing into his work. He presents architectonic structures that are free-standing totems, made with bamboo and thread. These volumes invite the visitors to view them in the round, allowing us to discover gravity, mass, weight, volume, light and air.
