About the artist

In his sculptural works, Alexandre da Cunha often incorporates found objects which could be considered ordinary and unspectacular. While speculating on modernist ideas of form and composition in his work, the artist also draws on the creative ingenuity and resourcefulness demonstrated in countries like his native Brazil where household products are often recycled and re-used to overcome the sparseness of new materials.

Recent solo exhibitions include Sommer & Kohl, Berlin (2013), Le Grand Café Centre d’Art Contemporain, Saint-Nazaire (2012), Thomas Dane Gallery, London (2012), Centro Cultural Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo (2011), Galeria Luisa Strina, Sao Paulo (2011) and Camden Arts Centre, London (2009).
