Untitled (Study of Charring Wood and Burning Structures II)
JAN 28 – MAY 13, 2018
Untitled (Study of Charring Wood and Burning Structures II) by the Finnish artist, Laura Lappi was on view January 28, 2018. Her work is eerily beautiful, and recalls both the provisional structures of rural life, as well as the mysterious artifacts of ruined architecture. Lappi works in a wide range of media including installation, sculpture, photography and video. Her work crosses the boundaries between our perception of space and time and between reality and fiction. She is interested in creating bewilderment, uncertainty, unexpected situations and mystery by shifting the form of space and the viewer’s point of view.
