Lúcia Koch worked as a member of the collective Arte Construtora, which was active in the Brazilian cities of São Paulo, Porto Alegre and Rio de Janeiro, occupying houses, parks and even an island. Koch explores the ambient light of spaces, covering facades, skylights and windows with perforated surfaces, translucent materials and cinematographic filters.

Her work has been featured in exhibitions across Brazil and internationally, including at the Aichi Triennale, Nagoya, Japan (2012); Biennial of the Americas, Denver, USA (2010); São Paulo Bienal (2006); Göteborg International Biennial, Sweden (2005) and the Istanbul Biennial, Turkey (2003).

In a long corridor-like room at Bait Al Serkal, another Heritage Area building, seven doors opening onto the veranda have been replaced with coloured screens.

Conversion is an installation that plays with this natural source of light by covering the courtyard with a metal structure made up of pivoting panels of coloured filters.
