Tonico Lemos Auad in 'Pair II'
Pizzuti Collection partners Tonico Lemos Auad and Alexandre da Cunha for this edition of the series, 'Pair'. Both artists were born in Brazil (Auad in 1968 and da Cunha in 1969), and both studied in San Paolo and then London, where they currently live and work. Auad and da Cunha share a sensitive and conceptual approach to objects and frequently engage with everyday materials, which undergo beautiful and unexpected transformations. Whilst da Cunha's work recalls the playfulness of Duchamp's readymades, Tonico Lemos Auad employs ephemeral materials to highlight the transience and unpredictability of life.
