In the words of the critic and curator Olívia Ardui, “Zé Carlos Garcia’s sculptures present themselves as unusual entities that could take the shape of imaginary insects, a breed born from different species, or a mix of plumes and parts of wooden furniture. The hybrids that originate from this blend, although conserving part of their original meanings, generate a morbid curiosity concerning their nature. Using this logic, Garcia highlights the public’s perversity, made hostage of their own voyeurism and caught between astonishment and fascination in front of ripped-apart bodies, as fictional as they may be.”
