Exhibition history: Miami, Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection, The Unbounded Line, November 2016Artist BioLygia PapeBrazilian - 1927 - 2004FollowLygia Pape's diverse oeuvre includes sculpture, engraving, performance and filmmaking. Along with Lygia Clark and Helio Oiticica, Pape was a signatory of the Brazilian Neo-Concrete manifesto, which promoted the ideal that art was not a static representation but rather organic and experiential; Pape's oeuvre was greatly informed by the notion that art should be activated by the viewer. This tenant is best represented in the artist's 1959 Livro da Criacao (Book of Creation), in which the artist utilized geometric shapes to create 16 wood constructions, or 'pages,' with abstract imagery — each signifying a moment in the creation of the world. Each page is accompanied by poetic lyrics and the viewer was encouraged to touch the books and read the poetry aloud.View More Works101102103104105106107108109110111112113114115116117118119120121122123124125126127128129130131132133134135136137138139140141142143144145146147148149150151152153154155156157158159160161162163164165166167168169170171172173174175176177178179180181182183184185186187188189190191192193194195196197198199200201202203204205206207208209210211212213214215216of 116 lots178Lygia PapeFollowUntitledsigned and dated 'Pape 64' lower right; ink on paper; 12 3/4 x 17 3/4 in.
