LUCIA KOCH

Lucia Koch uses interventions, installations, videos and photographs to explore the means for effecting change in one’s experience of the environment. Whether through covering architectural façades, skylights and windows with translucent materials or filters, by creating new layers between spaces, or by producing photographs that challenge perceptions of scale, Koch’s interest lies in creating altered states of place, utilizing light and color to transform our spatial experiences. 

Koch lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. Recent solo exhibitions include A Longa Noite, SESC Pompeia, São Paulo, Brazil (2018) and La temperatura del aire, El Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Caja de Burgos (CAB), Burgos, Spain (2015).
