Last days | “Insustentável Paraíso”, solo show by André Komatsu

(São Paulo, Brazil)

André Komatsu holds the solo exhibition “Insustentável Paraíso” [“Unbearable Paradise”], on view since the 23rd September in Galeria Vermelho.

The show lends continuity to his recent research that resorts to errors, accidents and conflicts as a basis for presenting possible alternatives to systems widely inserted in contemporaneity.

This is what takes place in “Esquadria Disciplinar 2”, which employs a set of rules taken from logical systems such as mathematics, architecture and geometry, aiming to reveal the ambivalence of these systems and to question their effectiveness.

In the series “(Re)forma Real” [photo], consisting of groups of old postcards, Komatsu interferes on the image of old and theoretically solid buildings, adding structural elements to them that point to the failure of the ideals that these buildings represent. The solo show also includes the series “Falha Estrutural”.
