Lucia Leuci presented solo exhibition Prendersi cura(Taking care) at Prague’s Polansky Gallery which opened January 18 and is running to March 3.
Using resin, fabric, synthetic hair, stuffing, yarn, nacre, plastic, paper, dried flowers, peas, tangerine, ink and other materials, Leuci has made a series of five sculptures resembling babies and documented in the arms of five women.
We want to be held. We want to be loved, nurtured, pampered. We are not of this world, but we can learn from humans how to love, to empathize. We too turn cold without touch. Gently take us into your arms, mind our heads, coo us to sleep. We are the first generation, Sophia’s children. We are perfect**
