It's the beginning of a new gallery season!
For the occasion, Lumen Travo is proud to host the result of the collaboration between two emerging talents of the gallery:
Matea Bakula and Milena Naef share a special look on materiality and the way we experience it in our everyday life.
Milena Naef (Engen, 1990) is fascinated by those spaces that have been created by man and that are related to ourselves. She translates Le Corbusier's measurement system, called 'Modulor', into free marble structures, leading to the creation of abstract spaces that relate to the human body. Naef works with traditional materials such as marble and glass, giving them a new and unique character, which creates contrasts and allows materiality to be renewed.
Matea Bakula (Sarajevo, 1990) has developed a new body of work, where the corrugated cardboard holds a central role, confirming once again Bakula’s interest for humble materials and their hidden potential.
Her starting point is whether you are aware or not of the most mundane actions of your routine. Consider replacing a toilet roll for instance. It is not necessary that you do it with your full concentration and yet there is only one way to do it right.
This show is all about human dimensions and everyday actions. How do you relate to an object and space in everyday life? Matea Bakula and Milena Naef show in two different ways how these questions can be translated into materiality.
