Ivorypress presented this new catalogue to accompany the first solo exhibition of Luisa Lambri (Como, Italy, 1969) in Madrid, held at Ivorypress between 26 May and 9 July 2011. The book includes an interview with the artist by curator and art critic Massimiliano Gioni, as well as texts by Walead Beshty, Douglas Fogle, Adriano Pedrosa, and the Japanese architects Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa (SANAA). Lambri’s work is the result of her emotional as well as intellectual response to some of the most iconic modernist buildings of the 20th Century, designed by architects such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Oscar Niemeyer, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Luis Barragan and Giuseppe Terragni, among others. As Douglas Fogle explains, ‘in Lambri’s work the subjective takes precedence over the objective and the architectural detail is elevated to a place of prominence over the totality of the building.’
