Lotty Rosenfeld

Santiago, Chile 1943


Chilean visual artist, born in Santiago in 1943.

The development of the social reality that frame our routines became the physical foundations of my creative interventions. To this purpose, from 1979 to date, I use a traffic sign as a prime analogical model. I intervene the white lines that divide the lanes of a highway, modifying them materially by generating another sign, the sign + that I formed by inter-crossing two lines: the first imposed by a social regulation code while the second was proposed by Art as a sign of transgression.
Introducing “crisis” within an arbitrary order, the work stimulates individuals to rethink his/her uncritical submission to conventional codes, thus breaking the supposedly “natural” nature of signs.

She was part of the Generation of ’70 , and ligated to the Advanced Scene . In 1979 she made his first action with the group CADA, the group made a strong inflection in the history of national art.
