„Where is the time I have left in this space?“

I am an artist from Brazil living and working in Rio de Janeiro and Berlin.

For the last years I have followed an artistic path, which is the result of a predominantly sculptural research, which focuses on time as a decisive agent, along with other ideas. I experiment with the proximity of originally diverse material such as: water, plastic, iron, glass, copper, steel, cotton, plants and many others, rendering imminent the action of time by a mnemonic record on matter and space.

As can be seen in the enclosed photos of my work, there is the presence of a poetic language, which recalls interactions between internal organic fluid forms, incorporating chance and speculation and experiencing the abstraction that results from their experiments with the material. Nevertheless, no artistic activity is free from the artist’s subjective intention, regardless of purely physical and material conditions. Such assembling combine materials that create new properties through these combinations, emphasizing on many occasions a vocabulary of physical terms like balance, density, materiality, capillarity, etc. These works, in which the physical characteristics are not virtual, symbolic or representational but where they literally exist, are nonetheless subjective emotional assemblages.

My project is to go on with the development and perfecting of some aesthetic and visual questions arising from experiments that stem from the work I have been developing. To move ahead in the sense of working with the space in its continuity and extension anxiety, but always making use of confrontation, of the paradox of disruption and temporal suspension – relating the question of a movable perception to contemporary man’s uncertain, unstable and fickle situation.
