Throughout his works Nazif Lopulissa (Tiel, 1991) investigates the playfulness of forms and shapes. By combining everyday shapes, fragmenting, or transforming them, and by executing them in a multitude of materials and techniques, Lopulissa constantly reconfigures the enthusiasm of making work.
Since 2018 Lopulissa is working on a long-term exploration of the playground as a site of contradiction. While the designs of the playground are meant to trigger playful imagination, they are bound to strict regulations at the same time. This contrast between the open joyful character of shapes and the way they are restricted in their everyday use provides Lopulissa with a perfect foundation for his ongoing work.
