RESIDENCY: Tiago Mestre

london exhibit

Tiago Mestre’s practice is concerned with the idea of displacement, both in terms of discipline and territory. Originally trained as architect, his sculptures and installations reflect his status as a Portuguese artist living and working in Brazil and the historical associations of human and artistic flows between the two countries. The work actively resists a singular reading and engages with different symbolic and anthropological registers through a critical approach to materiality and modes of presentation.

During his residency at Gasworks, Mestre plans to engage with the ceramics collection at the V&A, one of the most extensive and comprehensive in the world and featuring ceramic works from 2500 BC to the present day. By studying such a rich craft history he will seek to find new frameworks and vocabularies for his ongoing work.
