Luisa Lambri (born 1969 in Como, Italy)

Luisa Lambri, born in Como, Italy in the year 1969, is a distinguished Italian artist renowned for her contributions to the fields of photography and film. Presently, she is based in the thriving artistic hub of Milan. Her artistic endeavors are notably centered on themes associated with architecture and abstraction.

Luisa Lambri's artistic portfolio primarily delves into photography, with occasional forays into the realm of film. Her body of work stands as a testament to her engagement with a diverse array of subjects, all revolving around the profound intricacies of the human condition in relation to spatial environments. These subjects encompass the politics of representation, the historical legacy of abstract photography, Feminism, Modernism, identity, and history.

Through her artistic lens, Luisa Lambri critically examines the construct of Modernism, perceiving it as a predominantly male-dominated social and cultural creation. She undertakes a deconstructive exploration of spaces designed by iconic male architects, offering a distinctive, femininely informed perspective. Her artistic works shed light on the interplay of gender, space, and temporality, unveiling them as outcomes of intricate attribution processes that shape and perpetuate societal structures.

Formally, Luisa Lambri's artistic creations manifest as lyrical and understated abstract compositions, often characterized by lines and grids. Occasionally, these structured forms harmoniously coexist with untamed organic elements such as plants or flowers, which subtly take over the rigid constructs. The minimalistic nature of her photographs draws inspiration from early 20th-century abstract geometric painting, evoking a sense of transcendence and spirituality. Her oeuvre is deeply informed by the pioneering work of photographers such as Paul Strand, Edward Weston, and Tina Modotti, as well as contemporary artists like Cindy Sherman and Vija Celmins. Additionally, the Light and Space movement of Southern California, Brazilian neo-concrete art, and Minimalism serve as recurring points of reference.

In recent times, Luisa Lambri has ventured into photographing the works of renowned artists such as Lygia Clark, Donald Judd, and Robert Irwin. In acknowledging her artistic influences, Lambri credits visionaries like Gina Pane, Cindy Sherman, and Francesca Woodman.
