Brazilian artist Renata Lucas usually works with already existing situations. Based on fictions, she intervenes into found landscapes and architectures making the background become the main character. Her displacements cause spaces to become the main focus of attention revealing their deeper structures and proposing meaningful transformations. In her new work she creates a geometric alteration at the extremes of the terrain of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, destabilizing its boundaries and crossing its thresholds. Renata Lucas (born 1971 in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil) was awarded the Ernst Schering Foundation Art Award 2009. This book documents the presentation of two artworks specially made for KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, 12.09. – 07.11.2009. with texts by Jens Hoffmann, Charlotte Klonk and an interview with Renata Lucas by Susanne Pfeffer designed by Manuel Raeder so that image and text never touch eachothers.
