We are very happy to show the latest body of work from Rodrigo Bueno at ArtRio 2013.
New sculpture will be displayed at ArtRio 2013 on the 07th of September…
Following out recent collaboration we are very please to share Tulio’s next solo show at Baró Galeria in Sao Paulo.
Opening 27th of April 11am – 6pm
Exhibition: 27 of April – 25th of May
Further detail: Baró Galeria
Ground, Tulio Pinto’s 9th solo exhibition, invites for an experience in which gravity is interrupted. The sculptor assembles materials of opponent natures to build up instants of unlikely balance. Density and weight come across lightness and fragility in almost abrupt encounters, generating instants of unexpected harmony.
In six new pieces, materials such as steel, glass, sand and granite are combined in different ways, so that a crescent tension is constantly present. The equation allows for an immersion within a zone of imminence, in which fragments of evident conflict are frozen. “These conflicts are accessed based on the observer’s personal experience”, says the artist.
Glass, present in nearly all new artworks, gives an outstanding component of lightness to the pieces. “Transparency permits that anything appears lighter than it is”, describes Tulio, who applies glass to create “invisible basis” in the new artworks, removing a dimension from them and therefore broadening the senses perception.
Pieces made with artisanal glass that compose the series Cumplicidade # 2 have been produced in a traditional factory of Sao Paulo just before it definitely closed its doors. “It is interesting that this pieces were the last activity to happen in a place with more than a century of history and therefore they carry not only the poetics of the artwork but also the history of this place”, he observes.
On at Baró Gallery until May, Ground is a metaphor of relationships, carefully built up by Tulio Pinto. This year, the artist also participates of project CEP – Corpo, Espaço e Percurso (Funarte) in the Estate of Rio Grande do Norte in May, and in July he does exhibits in Santander Cultural in Porto Alegre, with curatorship by Clarissa Diniz. During August, September and October, he takes part in the residency programme of EAC (Espacio de Arte Contemporáneo) in Montevideo.
As part of the Building Bridges show in Buenos Aires at the BSM art Building – Fundacion Rozenblum, we are happy to have visited the artist’ studios collaborating in the exhibition.
Jose Luis Landet is one of them, more to be added soon:
As part of the curational residency at the new Largo Das Artes, I was invited to the first grand opening of this new institution in Rio in presence of the Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff. She gave a very interesting speech on the way she has been jailed and tortured under dictatorship in the old part of the museum building, now the exhibition space.
Lot of work on display, a little too crowded but worth the cultural experience with some very interesting finds.
The June dates for the Saatchi Gallery paper show in London and Marcelo’s 23 x 8 meters installation are finally confirmed. We will update anyone with our progression.
So we went to catch up with him before his participation to the Building Bridges group show in Buenos Aires and the Binary one in the new Largo Das Artes in Rio for March.
More info to come…
While set up in a beautiful office in Rio, we are happily preparing the exhibition in Buenos Aires finalising the last touches of BUILDING BRIDGES.
Largos Das Artes offers an amazing and very inspiring space as well as a nice new direction with residencies program to come. We are very happy to have been asked to curate their first show called BINARY since their new development. More info on this very soon…
Studio visits have been great and it is good to see the development of artists since the last visit back in September.
