A sculpture made from iron and yarn that mimics the human body is being exhibited by Cristina Lisot as part of the VDF x Ventura Projects collaboration.
Exhibitor: Cristina Lisot
Project title: O
Cristina Lisot is a Brazilian textile artist, costume designer and dancer with a speciality in recycling and reframing materials.
As part of VDF x Ventura Projects she is presenting O, a tall cylindrical sculpture made from recycled iron and yarn. It is designed to allow people to enter and move around inside – bringing “dance and textile art together”.
According to Lisot it mimics the human body and how it is used for expression and communication. For example, the moveable hand-knitted screen filters in dappled light in the same way human’s absorb and digest of information.
Photography is by Giuliano Bianchi and Mario Melo.
