WITH ENGLISH AND PORTUGUESE TRANSLATION This is the first survey catalog of Brazilian-born, London-based artist Alexandre da Cunha. The works considered span from 2004-2012. Da Cunha takes everyday objects beach towels, curtain railings, mop heads and turns them into sculptures that, at a cursory glance, ask to be considered formally, within Modernist and Minimalist language. It is only through the nullification of these items utility that da Cunha can poke fun, not only at our knee-jerk art historical and cultural associations, but also at our notions of functionality. With forward essay "Not Pouring Paint on a Banana: The Concrete Poetry of Alexandre da Cunha" By Zoe Gray.
