RODRIGO MATHEUS AT SILVIA CINTRA + BOX 4
The Silvia Cintra + Box 4 gallery will open next November 7th, the solo show “Conjunto / Fração” by the artist from São Paulo, Rodrigo Matheus. They are installations, sculptures and collages that combine everyday objects in arrangements that challenge our notions of form and function given by modernity and industry. In the series of three collages that will be on display, the artist builds a new meaning for the bank orders, documents, invoices and old correspondence collected by him in flea markets. With these elements, he creates a kind of “notice board”, common in bureaucratic environments. The sculptures, on the other hand, articulate common objects of the corporate and industrial world. Rodrigo removes these objects from their initial function and proposes a new relationship between them and the world. This is the same principle of the two installations that are also part of the show, reorganizing small fragments of our daily life in another narrative line.
Rodrigo Matheus have a master’s degree in sculpture from the Royal College of Arts in London and lives today in Paris. In the past years he has participated in many exhibitions in Brazil and abroad, highlighting his recent participation in the Mercosur Biennial, the Lyon Biennial and the “Museum On / Off” group show at the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris.
