a solo show by Daniel de Paula
Conceptual artist Daniel de Paula creates sculptures and installations from objects and images he appropriates, borrows, and acquires from the public sector and corporate entities.
For his new solo show at Lumen Travo gallery, he uses this very gallery as a reference point, examining its role within an art system perpetuating competitive market ideologies like capital, labor, property, and value.
An important aspect of de Paula’s practice is the thematization of his negotiations with institutions and the bureaucratic processes and legal procedures that enable his access to the objects and media he uses as raw material in his works. These frameworks broaden de Paula’s focus and dredge up intertwined histories of geological, social, political, and global economic developments.
Opening on January 20, 17:00 - 19:00
Exhibition running until March 9, 2024
