Sobre a exposição

A série “Cadeias Elementares” é produto de uma investigação estética realizada a partir de um objeto doméstico comum – o pregador de roupa -, que resultou em um conjunto de 25 esculturas, concebidas em função das possibilidades embutidas nos componentes do utensílio (grampo-mola de metal & hastes de madeira), os quais, combinados, fundidos, somados, articulados etc., deram origem as peças ao mesmo tempo estranhas e familiares.
