Organic forms and an instinctive approach characterize the work of the award-winning Peruvian-American light artist Grimanesa Amorós. The basis of her fascinating sculptures, however, are the natural sciences, social history and critical theory. Thus, in her works, research and emotion enter into communication.
The space-filling sculptures and video installations by Amorós have already been shown around the globe: from Mexico to Tel Aviv and Beijing to Times Square in New York. She presented her latest works OCUPANTE and GOLDEN SECRET ROOM at the Ludwig Museum Koblenz in 2016. The artist creates playful light installations, which in their enigma allow for multi-layered interpretations. Together with an overview of her work, the volume presents these works in large-format illustrations and expresses their fluidity and luminosity.
