January – February 2017

Simões’s work departs from the experimentation with resistances and vulnerabilities of various materials such as paper, metals, concrete, wax, silicone. His sculptural work departs from the spacial study inherent to architecture and serves as a pretext to revisit the aesthetic canons of Brazilian Neo-concretism movement.

With a sort of nostalgia, the artist presents us with pieces that, although they are formal in their essence, become poetic and political statements about the current Latin American environment.
