The sculptures of Leonor Antunes (Lisbon, 1972) are based on a set of simple, delicate actions that reveal a deep concern with the material and sociocultural specificities of the places we inhabit. Her work is intimately related with modern architecture and design, and with the legacy of 1960s–70s minimalist and post-minimalist art. The works adapt to the nature of each exhibition space, reconfiguring the way we experience them.

The exhibition measuring, caring, interlacing presents a group of works by Leonor Antunes held in the Serralves Collection that relate to modernist houses which she visited and studied in detail. The artist replicates, transforms and decontextualizes the buildings’ architectural elements which are adapted to each exhibition setting according to different configurations that guide the gaze and the movement of the body in space. Installed according to the artist’s indications, the works presented in show are not perceived as isolated objects: they relate to one another to create an environment that encompasses both the space and its visitors.

This exhibition is part of the Touring Exhibitions Programme of the Serralves Collection, which aims to make the Foundation’s collection accessible to different audiences across the country.
