About the artist
Lygia began by asking questions in her painting about the relation between figure and background, and that aesthetic investigation ended up transforming itself into the ethical question par excellence: what is the nature of the distance between my body and the world? Why can’t the body – not only the body of the subject, but the very social body – free itself of pain?
