at the interface of sculpture and photography
Thomas Lucker is working with stoneslabs in a traditional way, later exposing them to light in his darkroom. He is interested in processes of remembering and forgetting and how our mind produces, alters, and overwrites memories to construct a coherent picture of ourselves and of the world. Lucker always starts with a photo, that finally becomes part of the work through treatment in the darkroom. Lucker uses limestone, a sediment emerged in primevally oceans, and thus bearing memories of the history of life already in it’s structure.
