Alexandre da Cunha, who was raised in Brazil and has lived in London for over a decade, explores his hybrid and complicated national identity. Da Cunha makes freestanding, wall-mounted, and architectural sculptures using transformed everyday or found objects, which remain identifiable within the abstract assemblages. His practice is influenced by both systems of mass production and artisanal craftsmanship, such that the final objects appear to be a mix between popular consumer object and archaeological relic. The artist once summarized: “By highlighting specific aspects of objects that surround us, I impose a possible entry for them in what is known as the art world.” Da Cunha’s influences include Marcel Duchamp, European Modernist architecture, and Op Art.
