Lisette uses her own visual language to convey notions of perception and memory, grounded in buildings and their surroundings. Caught between abstraction and reality, her layered pieces call for extensive admiration.
The Unité d’Habitation (la cité radieuse) is a housing estate designed by Le Corbusier together with architect and painter Nadir Afonso. When visiting Marseille I stayed in one of the apartments in this building and was caught by its extraordinary interior. Especially the corridor stuck in my mind. It was scarcely lit, with a low ceiling and glossy black floor which created a dark and mysterious yet spectacular experience to walk through. Especially as it seemed to be endless. In this series I visualised my experience of walking through the corridor.
