Luz Peuscovich – “THING”
Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2015 – Sunday, December 13, 2015

6pm – 9pm
Born in Tandil, a city located in the Southwest of the Buenos Aires Province, Argentina in 1984, Luz studied fine arts in Buenos Aires and in 2006 moved to the Capital of BA, where she has been painting nearly uninterrupted since. The artist moved from only painting to exploring other mediums as she was exhibiting at both solo and group shows in Buenos Aires, Rosario, La Plata and Tandil, Argentina as well as Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She began to incorporate installation, sculpture, photography, video, poetry, performance and music into her art. Currently, Luz’s projects focus on materials she collects from the places to which she travels. She usually spends 10-14 days collecting materials and constructing site-specific installations based on natural materials found in that place.
The artist commonly addresses human constructions in her work, symbolic structures representing the human conscience’ different needs. Concepts center around the perception of our five senses and the experience of the human body when stepping into a work of art, transforming perception of physical space by a feeling the viewer has. In many of her previous works, installations have caused viewers the feeling of nostalgia, evoking memories through the sight of specific plants and objects, or the action of swinging in a hammock, or sneaking into an intimate, delicate space.
The repetitive actions used to create these installations are symbolic of a universal commonality shared between all people all over the globe. By incorporating elements of found objects reflective of the specific environment/place where she is working, Luz is able to create works that feel both familiar and foreign at the same time. In talking about “Thing”, she has mentioned that she loves creating spaces which feel welcoming and inviting to all, and which inspire an understanding that we are not so different from one another, despite where we live. Much like how her most recent installation in Berlin was titled “Höhle”, (pronounced much like “hole” in english, but directly translating to “cave”), the titles of both of her installations here in the Tri-State, “WigWam” and “Thing” respectively, are also organically generated types of wordplay. The titles are vague yet intriguing enough to cause for incentive to explore not only the installations, but also what it means to be human.
