Grounded in a material aesthetic and ethic, Alexandre da Cunha makes sculpture and wall-mounted work using transformed everyday or found objects. Da Cunha has described his practice not as ‘making’ but as ‘pointing’. Pointing at existing objects in our everyday surroundings, and highlighting or revealing new and unexpected facets or meanings within them. This approach has allowed him to unpick our preconceptions and instinctive responses to things and shift our perspective to new ways of seeing and understanding, giving way to a lush potential, not only in interpreting his work, but also in everything we subsequently see around us in the world. Household cleaning objects suddenly conjure spiritual significance and lofty art historical precedents are echoed by hitherto mundane industrial ready-mades.
