“Rui Calçada Bastos proposes an exhibition questioning notions of balance and depth through a selection of works that create spatio-temporal breaches in the foundation and the intimacy of our memory. The artist develops and renews his visual language linked to construction and urban environments, which is marked by encounters, associations and found objects presented in new settings. His new works incorporate another dimension, one that connects their surface to their depths. He adds and removes elements through chiseled gestures, so simple yet precise that they become almost surgical. Bastos introduces shadow areas to his compositions, while he questions or subverts themes of verticality and precariousness, emptiness and perspective.”

FR“Rui Calçada Bastos propose une exposition questionnant les notions d’équilibre et de profondeur à travers une série d’œuvres qui ouvrent des brèches spatio-temporelles dans les fondations et dans l’intime de nos mémoires. Il y développe et renouvelle son vocabulaire lié à la construction et à l’environnement urbain, empreint de rencontres, d’associations et d’objets trouvés qu’il met en situation. Ses nouvelles créations intègrent une dimension supplémentaire, qui permet de relier le fond et la surface des choses par le biais d’un retrait ou d’un ajout réalisé d’un geste ciselé, simple et précis, voire chirurgical. Il introduit des zones d’ombres, interroge la verticalité et la précarité, le vide et la perspective.”
