Casa Triângulo is pleased to present Ressaca, Lucas Simões first solo exhibition at the gallery.
The show features a large installation consisting of 52 metal panels hinged together. The 65 meters length of this work is equivalent to the extension of the terrain of Casa Triângulo with the public space. The installation is an invitation to visitors to reconfigure the space of the gallery generating new paths and diverse spaces.
Parallel to the installation, the artist presents a new series of sculptures titled you text nothing like you look. Each sculpture proposes a dialogue between matter and poetry - verses in their original languages inspire the production of the sculptures that, when finalized, point to another verse in another language. This ensemble sculpture and poem become resigned, opening to new interpretations and senses.
