Tonico Lemos Auad presents ‘That which cannot be repaired'
As part of the 2015 exhibition program, Pivô presents the individual exhibition by Tonico Lemos Auad, Brazilian artist born in Belém and living in London since the late 1990’s. Curated by Kiki Mazzuchelli, this project includes commissioned works specific for Pivô’s space, apart from selected works that mobilize central themes in the artist’s practice. Opening on the 5th of April, 2015, this will be the artist’s first individual show at a Brazilian institution.
Auad’s work evidence rituals and technical abilities, from embroidery to knitting and woodcutting. These practices, today almost obsolete, evoke traditional methods of repair and renovation of ordinary objects that develops and unfolds in different ways for Tonico’s work.
