Curated by Kiki Mazzuchelli, this project includes commissioned works specific for Pivô's space, as well as selected works that mobilize central themes in the artist's practice. Auad disregards material value to create lyrical, often transient forms using a wide range of materials, from the ephemeral and everyday to the precious and enduring. Notions of luck, traditional anecdotes, chance, and the supernatural pervade Auad's work. But beyond playfulness his work resonates with a darker underbelly of existence. For Auad an awareness of death and the brevity of life are always near at hand.
The exhibition runs from 5 April until 30 May 2015.
