Laura Lima opens The Inverted at ICA Miami
Institute of Contemporary Art presents “The Inverse,” the debut American solo museum exhibition for the renowned Brazilian artist Laura Lima.
Working across mediums, Lima frequently subjects the body to surprising juxtapositions with objects and architectures. With each installation, she reinvents the viewer’s encounter with her work, skillfully considering the nature of perception, social relationships, and human behavior, while creating profound and startling aesthetic experiences.
For this monumental, site-specific installation, Lima entangles the gridded support beams of the museum’s Atrium Gallery with industrial nylon rope. Enormous at one end, the braided material dwindles in size until it seems to merge with a female body. Set still and partially out of view, the participant’s body achieves uncanny abstraction, presence, and suspense.
