Vanderlei Lopes

Brazil

He is interested in the phenomena of the transformation of materiality. Vanderlei Lopes’s body of work addresses notions of permanence and mutability. His works are the result of the mixture of different cultural traits that are always activating his artistic process. This continuous movement and change through different techniques has permeated the way in which he approaches the material, and therefore, the object. This makes his artistic production to be always challenged thanks to the constant changes and alterations of the material. Lopes vacillates between fiction and non-fiction, construction and deconstruction, and how certain notions of the process of social construction are seen in contemporary times.
