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).

Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.

We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.

The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
