José Spaniol (Brasil)
The artist José Spaniol ventures to push experiential boundaries with his work. His installations and sculptures incorporate unusual materials like sand, clay, and wax, together with other materials such as wood, stone, and metal, always associated with literary, philosophical, or encyclopaedic texts or place names, demanding the viewer to experience and ‘live’ the artwork. The artist brings together installation, sculpture, drawing, and architecture to create works with intense phenomenological charge, recovering the effort of generations which have sowed the land to construct what we now call Culture. In the exhibition Duplicadores, the artist presents two installations in which he introduces his vision of heaven and hell, as well as a series of drawings in Indian ink on paper and slate, and two sculptures. On 10th December at 22.00, José Spaniol will open a photography exhibition at 3+1 Arte Contemporânea (31 Rua António Maria Cardoso, Chiado ), which will complement the drawings that the artist presents at Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa.
