Luisa Lambri’s light-filled photographs of Roberto Burle Marx’s gardens play with the idea of interiority and exteriority. The essence of her work is a feminist deconstruction of modernist architecture, symbolic of social constructions and conventions, and the underlying systems of power. These images abstract the clear lines and grids of architecture, while the natural plants appear as a form of resistance to the rigidity of modernism. Her work, and that of other contemporary artists included in our current exhibition, demonstrates Burle Marx’s lasting influence on today’s contemporary artists.
