Alexandre da Cunha is a Brazilian-born artist, living and working in London. He describes his practice not as ‘making’ but more as ‘pointing’, gesturing at existing objects in our everyday surroundings and revealing new and unexpected meanings within them.
In Public Sculpture (Pouff VII) da Cunha presents sections of large underground drainage pipes. Three simple geometric concrete shapes that exist in stark contrast to the architecture around and even visible through the work. Da Cunha brings a joyful new reading to these seemingly familiar objects.
