Fernando Laposse
NGV Triennial

From product designer to Triennial artist – Fernando Laposse specialises in transforming natural materials into elegant design pieces, often working with under-utilised plant fibres traditional to Mexico such as sisal, loofah and corn leaves. Laposse speaks with NGV about his work featured in NGV Triennial, and his research into these materials and their historical and cultural ties to a particular location and its people.
