Thiago Honório

  • Brazil-based artist Thiago Honorio’s primarily sculptural practice takes found or commodified objects and creates complex, visually unusual representations that manipulate the chosen materials against their “intended” purposes. The resulting sculptures reverberate with the past lives of their materials: amongst their contradictory uses, they further develop a matrix of contact between disparate bodies of knowledge and temporalities. Honorio uses his sculptures to develop multimodal but specific references to Brazilian history and its multitude of cultures and contexts, emphasizing the construction of new potentialities from the discarded commodities of the past.
