LEGOs in fiber resin.

Batista is intrigued by the complexity and potential of everyday objects, even those as mundane as bicycle’s tires. Batista decided to insert himself and interrupt societal structures that destine such objects to “a vocation of waste.” In his exploration of materials, Batista discovered that his ‘found’ objects could function as support, medium and subject, or as self sustained complete works of art. Batista avoids polluting his found objects even through his own curatorial presence, arguing that assigning value to some over others creates contaminating waste. Instead Batista sublimates, recycles and allows his materials space to articulate themselves.
