Lulu Wolf (b. 1988, US) is an artist based in Lisbon.
The foundation of my work stems from an interest in–and exploration of– materiality, form, temporality, visual translation and perception and awareness.
I want to slow you down– look at this, not that. Maybe you will think about what that was when you look at this ... the form of this created from the absence of that.

“Every translator becomes aware, in the course of his task, that, apart from idiomatic locutions, the 'From’ language has a certain number of constantly iterated words which, though readily translatable, occur in the 'Into' language far less frequently and less colloquially. Through long use, these words have become mere pegs or signs, the meeting places of mental associations, the reunions of related notions. They are tokens of sense rather than particularizations of sense.”
Vladimir Nabokov, foreword to Mikhail Lermontov's A Hero of Our Time
