Lucy + Jorge Orta

Born in 1966 - United Kingdom


Lucy Orta (b. Sutton Coldfield, UK, 1966) and Jorge Orta (b. Rosario, Argentina, 1953) founded Studio Orta in 1991. Lucy + Jorge Orta’s collaborative practice focuses on the social and ecological factors of environmental sustainability to realise major bodies of work employing drawing, sculpture, installation, object making, couture, painting and silkscreen printing, as well staging workshops, ephemeral interventions and performances.

In parallel dialogue with practice Lucy + Jorge Orta have founded Les Moulins, a cultural heritage regeneration project situated outside Paris along the Grand Morin river, Marne-la-Vallée, France. The eight-kilometre expanse comprising of four former industrial sites will be transformed into a non-profit research centre for interdisciplinary workshops and residencies to promote the creation and presentation of experimental in-situ artworks.
