Lawrence Carroll Another life

26 Sep 2011—31 Jan 2012
Comunicato stampa

Nello spazio esterno della Buchmann Galerie di Agra (Lugano) Lawrence Carroll (nato nel 1954 a Melbourne) presenta la sua prima scultura in vetro. Realizzata a Murano nel 2009, another life è stata esposta nella mostra Glasstress durante l’ultima edizione della Biennale di Venezia.

Della nascita di questa particolare opera Lawrence Carroll scrive: “My work for the last 25 years has been exploring the possibility that ideas can have another life, that nothing is truly exhausted, and that ideas can unfold in time in the hands of the artist or later in the hands of another and new meaning can form. I wanted to give the pozzo another life, to awaken something that has been sleeping and lying dormant for years. I wanted the pozzo to have a purpose and meaning again and to stand as a symbol for Venice. A Venice that could once again be vital and open to possibilities. That art can be one of these vehicles for possibilities that can awaken Venice. Just like the pozzo, I wish for a Venice that is more than a decoration.”

Il lavoro di Lawrence Carroll ha trovato spazio, fra l’altro, alla documenta 9; allo Städtisches Museum Abteiberg Mönchengladbach, al Museum Folkwang Essen, alla Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart e al Museo Correr di Venezia. Prossimamente Lawrence Carroll sarà all’Hôtel des Arts di Tolone mentre è previsto un’importante personale alla Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane nella primavera 2012.
