SOLO SHOW | pH7 INTERFACES CORPO E ARQUITECTURA
JUN/JUL 2019, Natural History Museum of Angola, Luanda, Angola.
This is a solo show with about 25 new works, among sculptures, installation and drawings with paper interventions. In this exhibition, the artist proposes not one, but multiple dialogues with the city through the body and architecture. In this case, through the window railings as an architectural element, where he establishes parallels between private and public space; between nature and culture; between skin and structure and proposes a reflection on the possible interfaces existing in the relations between the human being and the condition that surrounds him.
In his work, Pedro Pires has been exploring over the last few years questions about identity and stereotypes in direct relation with education, history and institutions. This interest comes from his personal experience as Angolan and Portuguese. The artist explores his identity and political, social and economic position in these two countries and continents, making parallels with other realities.
Curated by Sónia Ribeiro and produced by This Is Not A White Cube.
