Artur Lescher
Brazilian, b. 1962

Since the 1980s, Artur Lescher has been creating austere, poetic sculptures, objects, and installations through which he investigates the mechanics of form and movement, balance and tension, and architectural spaces. He came to national prominence in his native Brazil in 1987, when he participated in the 19th Bienal de São Paulo with Aerólitos, an installation of two Zeppelin-like balloons set side-by-side, one inside, the other outside of the pavilion’s windowed wall, creating a compelling double image that seemed to dematerialize the architectural feature separating them. Lescher has been playing with the perception of materials and spaces ever since, in works reflecting direct influences from Constructivism, Suprematism, the Brazilian Neo-Concrete movement, Performance Art, and Minimalism. At the heart of all of his work is a focus on perceived boundaries—between, for example, reality and its representation—which he continuously breaks down.
