Inspired by his urban surroundings, conceptual artist Raul Mourão marries fragments of the real and imaginary in his mobile sculptures, drawings, videos, and performances. Using meticulous, seemingly architectural drawings as his starting point, Mourão creates minimalist abstract sculptures and assemblages that focus on the tension between the raw chaos of the city and its controlled geometry, incorporating referents such as metal railings, security systems, fences, and objects reminiscent of trolleys and stalls. He also creates surrealistic films that offer glimpses of peripheral urban experiences with dreamlike juxtapositions of disparate objects.
