Now to May 13, 2018 see Lygia Pape: Tteia 1, C
The Ttéias are constructed by the geometric installation of silver or gold-coloured threads in a space, either from the floor to the ceiling or across the corner of a room. The groups of thread that course through space are also staggered, and some actually intersect others, literally weaving through the air. Other groups of threads simply appear to intersect.
The installations blend the real and the imaginary, letting the viewer discover the work through interaction and inspection. The word ‘ttéia’, which Pape created, is an elision of the Portuguese word for ‘web’ and ‘teteia’, a colloquial word for a graceful and delicate person or thing.
