Artur Lescher’s work represents his constant experimentation with materials, their physical qualities and objectual characteristics. Through his works, the artist makes reference to natural elements which, when impeccably reproduced by means of industrial processes, reveal and, at the same time, deny these very real origins.Read More
Another key component in Lescher’s body of work is architecture, both in synthesis and context. In an abstraction exercise of in-situ installations, the artist adopts the spatial situations of the exhibition space to transform corners, walls and doors into large-scale installations. His works emerge subtly as poetic gestures in space transmitting force and instability, balance and movement, tension and silence. Neutralized, the functionality of the object ceases to exist and the possibilities of interpretation and meaning multiply.
Artur Lescher emerged in the mid-80’s into the Brazilian art scene, influenced by the Neo-Concrete movement of Mira Schendel, Helio Oiticica and Sergio Camargo. Since then he has presented his work in the major museums and institutions of Brazil including: the Sao Paulo Biennale, Biennale MercoSur, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Modern Art in Sao Paulo. He has also exhibited his work in the USA, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, Spain and France.
