Lucia Warck Meister

Lucia Warck – Meister is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of codes in our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call ‘identity’. In ARTEMISIA, Warck-Meister interprets the story of baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi’s sexual assault changed the way she saw herself, in the use of red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and porcelain. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics, but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.
