Lucia Bru - 1970

Cubes A1117.133

Lucia Bru sculpts, in a broad sense of the word. Beyond the sculptural object or the installation, she breathes life and body into space, architecture and, by the same token, into the void, the air, the immaterial. Clean, concentrated, her work resists and captivates. The gesture is precise, delicate, simple, as are the shapes she creates and the materials she prefers in general. In the delicate and discreet concretization of forms, in their subtle and suspensive integration into architecture as well as in the idea of instantaneity suggested by a seemingly precarious, fleeting, even unstable balance, there is in her work a form of resistance, a dialectical force, which commands attention. The switch between interstitial moments of occultation and visibility also confers a very particular relief to her video and photographic work, an undoubtedly lesser-known part of her search. Lucia Bru’s graphic/photographic works play on these lines of tension that make them discrete objects and images yet all the more challenging and resilient.

Lucia Bru born in 1970, in Brussels where she lives and works. She graduated from sculpture at the ENSAV La Cambre in 1994. Bru has been teaching at ENSAV La Cambre and at the Académie des Beaux-Arts of Saint-Gilles. She has recently exhibited at Axel Vervoordt Gallery, Kanaal, Wijnegem, Belgium; Maison Grégoire, Brussels, Belgium; Galerie Albert Baroninan, Brussels, Belgium and Galerie Philippe Casini, Paris, France, amongst onther solo exhibitions.
