Rio de Janeiro, 1969. Lives and works in London.
Alexandre da Cunha

Alexandre da Cunha’s work combines utilitarian objects and traditional sculptural methods of carving and moulding to create ambitious new structures. The materials employed reference high modernist art through structure, pattern and motif. Brancusi columns made of gardenware, busts constructed from mop heads and sculptures made of concrete rings nod toward modernism, Arte Povera and Fluxus, from a background where reuse is part of everyday life.
