Festival | Lucy Williams | Via
Lucy Williams is interested in early 20th century modernist design. She collects photographs (mostly black and white) of modernist buildings and interiors, which she then transforms and abstracts into three-dimensional relief through her own sense of space, color and inventive use of diverse materials. These may include balsa wood, card, Plexiglas, wool embroidery, acrylic paint, cork and paper.
The title ‘Festival’ recalls the exciting ‘Festival of Britain’ held in London in 1951, where a new feeling of optimism, purpose and social responsibility was conveyed in modernist architecture, sculpture and design. This surprising and daring event was organized to inspire a public recovering from the trauma of war and trapped in the gray austerity of post-war Britain. International modernism was embraced by a new generation looking forward to modern homes and a comfortable, colorful lifestyle.

In their “Apocalypse in Art" series, Ukrainian artists Vitaliy and Elena Vasilieva envision the world’s current citadels of art under siege. In a future desolated by environmental disaster, the familiar forms of our cultural landmarks stand out in sharp relief: the New Museum's stacked blocks in a flooded landscape, the Guggenheim's helical galleries nestled among the sand dunes, and the Pompidou Center's exposed infrastructure lit up in a lightning storm. By placing cultural landmarks in imagined post-apocalyptic world, the artists raise questions about the longevity and role of art and the relationship between environment and our cultural artifacts. Even in an apocalyptic future, art lives on, a testament to the power of cultural creation. Indeed, the series suggests that if culture is harnessed to transform how we view and treat the environment, such an end might be averted.
