Erika Verzutti

  • Erika Verzutti (b. 1971, Sao Paolo, Brazil) is a sculptor of haptic floor standing and wall hung sculptures that refer to principally, the female body. Openings, organs and skin are references that recur throughout her work, while also remaining interested in recalling images the natural world, fruits, plants and trees to suggest a symbiosis between the two. The works often have a strong sexual content and suggest physical sensations and provoke fantasies. They are playful, ritualistic, fetishistic and inviting yet repelling touch at once and the same time. As José August Ribeiro has written on her work: ‘the work is succulent and acid sweet and sour and bitter, in several senses.’
