"and materiality becomes nothing but a mere representation of a structure of dominance"
In occasion of his first solo presentation in the Netherlands, entitled, and materiality becomes nothing but a mere representation of a structure of dominance, Brazilian artist and researcher Daniel de Paula, who currently lives and works between Amsterdam and São Paulo, presents a series of objects and works that give continuation to his ongoing investigations towards infrastructure and the production of geographical space understood as the reproduction of violent practices that are fundamental to capitalist production. Through a variety of sculptural and conceptual strategies the artist proposes, not only a critical reflection of the physical structures that surround us, but also of the agency and invisible phenomena they conceal.
