CONTEMPORARY PROJECTS - DANIEL STEEGMANN MANGRANÉ: A TRANSPARENT LEAF, INSTEAD OF THE MOUTH
from 30 SEP 2017 to 07 JAN 2018
Daniel Steegmann Mangrané was born in Barcelona in 1977 and has lived in Rio de Janeiro since 2004. In 2015 he was selected by Artnet News as one of the "50 Most Exciting Artists in Europe Today”. He is the eighth artist in the "Contemporary Projects” series - a dynamic platform for the presentation of works by emerging or established artists, that aims to foster new forms of art using different disciplines and targeted at the younger generation.
Daniel Steegmann Mangrané’s works assume a variety of forms, representing built environments and the natural world.
Inspired by stories of modernist abstraction, architecture and the perpetual and organizational structures of nature, Mangrané’s oeuvre includes drawings, sculptures, lighting design and films, and is developed as part of poetically planned environments.
For the exhibition in Serralves, Mangrané has conceived a living landscape for the Museum’s central room. A glass pavilion houses a garden and mimetic creatures, a series of sculptures, a drawing on the wall, a hologram and several windows, that alter the spectator’s experience. All these elements are combined to create a living ecosystem of transfigurations and metamorphoses, both real and symbolic.

The exhibition is organized by Serralves and curated by the Museum’s Director, Suzanne Cotter, and by Paula Fernandes.

This exhibition benefits from scientific advice from the science communication team of CIBIO-InBIO (Research Centre in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources, Associated Laboratory) which develops scientific dissemination activities related to biodiversity and fosters intersection between art and science, in Serralves - in the framework of a protocol signed between the two institutions and the Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
