Google Doodle for Lygia Clark’s 95th Birthday

Lygia Clark’s 95th Birthday

Happy Birthday  Lygia Clark!

Today's doodle celebrates the 95th birthday of artist Lygia Clark, famed Brazilian painter, sculptor and teacher. Lygia Clark co-founded the Neo-Concrete movement, which sought to change art from a passive viewing experience to an engaging interaction. 

Her art pieces,  specifically the bichos, were designed to be modified, re-positioned and folded into new configurations by participants. 

These "critters" were an early step in Clark's attempts to bridge the gap between artist and viewer.

Later in her career, Clark turned the evocative power of her art toward healing, and became a proponent and practitioner of art therapy. 

Her work focused on bodily awareness as well as unconscious sensory perception, the inner life, and emotions.
