Descripción del Artista

Alexandre da Cunha es una de las figuras más interesantes del panorama artístico brasileño. “My working pro­cess is based on my observation of objects. I have always been intrigued by the massive amount of stuff one needs to live and the roles of objects in our surroundings. I am interested in the processes of design, man­ufacture, and distribution of them among ourselves. A great deal of my work consists of forcing myself to learn about the struc­tures of ordinary objects and the narratives behind them, their cultural uses and their im­plications in society. The method of transfor­mation or play with their appearance often happens through very subtle alterations; I believe this process has more to do with tim­ing than physical intervention, though. It is about creating a platform and allowing the viewer to see something familiar from a priv­ileged point of view.” [Alexandre da Cunha, in an interview to Jochen Volz for the magazine Mousse, 2017] Recent solo shows include: Thomas Dane, Naples (upcoming, 2020); Duologue – collaboration with Phillip King, The Royal Society of Sculptors, London, England (2018); Boom, Pivô, São Paulo (2017); Mornings, Office Baroque, Brussels (2017); Free Fall, Thomas Dane Gallery, London (2016); Amazons, CRG Gallery, New York (2015); Real, Galeria Luisa Strina, São Paulo (2015).
