Lucia Dellefant

For more than a decade the artist Lucia Dellefant is focusing on topics of social and political development. Her work includes paintings, sculptures, interactive projects and installations in public spaces.

During her stay at Beijing Lucia Dellefant was working on a new series called ‘imploding city‘. Beijing has been changing in a very rapid way over the last twenty years. The artist wants to exaggerate this process in her small paintings.
She took photos of huge buildings, houses, small shops on the street, hutongs and construction sites. After printing them on paper, she created new szenes and buildings by painting over some parts of the photos and combining objects which are not related to each other. The results are wired buildings in fake surroundings.
