Architecture

The Portuguese artist André Castro Vasconcelos creates installations concentrating on the possibilities and limitations of the material. His works are large-format constructions made of objects known from everyday life. The artist plays with concepts, inside '/' outside ',' structure '/ shape, remaining close to the classic Vitruvian triad: firmitas, utilitas, venustas.

The artist uses recycled materials such as: used clothing, water bottles and basic structural elements that require simple assembly methods. Objects are connected by simple joining, tying loops with tape, wooden screws or making knots with ropes.
