Alexandre da Cunha
Arena

Curated in dialogue with Jenni Lomax

Opening day: 26 September, 11am-6pm (visitor numbers in the gallery will be limited to 15 at a time)
Exhibition dates: 29 September – 12 December 2020

‘Always observant of the materiality of objects and how they sit in the world, da Cunha carefully gathers and realigns them to form unexpected allegiances that, as with Marble, challenge perceptions of value and authority. When transported to an unfamiliar place, domestic, workaday objects and materials become themselves unfamiliar—maybe alien, maybe exotic—they also acquire an aesthetic beauty and new status.’

– Jenni Lomax
