Nacho Carbonell

Luciferase LIV

$20,000.00

Description/

Nacho Carbonell’s ‘Luciferase’ collection expresses the artist’s renowned tactile approach to sculpture which plays with textures, experimental techniques, and natural materials. Produced for Galerie BSL since 2011, ‘Luciferase’ is historically Carbonell’s first work to incorporate light.

Created entirely by hand, each work is unique and manifests itself as a living organism with its own personality, coming to surprise the viewer with its intriguing light source and unexpected texture that resembles the skin of an unknown species. “The root of the word luciferase is ‘light carrier’ and reflects the system used by flora and fauna living in the abyss, in the total darkness found in the depths of the oceans. Even more than lamps, I see these pieces as creatures that glow with light.”

With ‘Luciferase’, Nacho Carbonell breaks with all conventions to invent creatures with a communicative presence that arouse one’s feelings and imagination. The result of a combination of narrative intentions and experiments with materials, these biomorphic light sculptures appeal to our sensitivity and our ability to dream.


Nacho Carbonell

designer

Born in Spain in 1980 and now based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Carbonell works alongside his team of designers and artists in an open warehouse. He graduated in 2003 from Cardenal Herrera University in Spain and went on to study at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Upon graduating, he created collections such as Evolution in 2009, which won him a nomination for Beazley Design of the Year from the Design Museum in London.

In 2010, a year after being named a Designer of the Future at Design Miami/Basel, he presented This Identity, redefining his current style of organic forms and rough and colorful textures. His pieces are part of private collections and museums around the world.
