Giulia Ricci’s renewed interest in and engagement with architecture has sparked the interest in exploring works on a larger scale. Indeed, over the past five years, the artist has made a series of large-scale site-specific commissions within architectural spaces. Somewhat misleadingly described as drawings, these installations are made with materials as varied as vinyl or etched bronze. This has become a significant development within the artist’s practice and has led her to devise new approaches to experiential and direct relationship with architectural space, which in turn has clearly impacted on new studio work such as the Alteration/Deviation series.
