Laura Lappi

Still untitled – new work inspired by the ancient floor plans and structures


-

The inspiration for Laura Lappi’s upcoming exhibition are the grandeur of ancient cathedrals, Byzantine architecture and medieval Scandinavian wooden churches. The sculptures comprise abstracted segments of various architectural structures, reminding of the sculptural properties of some of the world’s most renowned works of architecture. Through the series of sculptures Lappi addresses the topics of what these buildings and structures represent in our communities, since they are usually seen as the most expressive, the most permanent and the most influential and shape the way we live and think.

Laura Lappi has studied at the AKI Academy of Art and Design in The Netherlands. Currently she lives and works in New York. Lappi’s work has been exhibited  internationally, including solo exhibitions at Lorimoto gallery in New York and The Yard project space in Colorado. Her site-specific installation 7×7 (Hope) was installed in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in New York and commissioned by Art In The Parks NYC.
