Miguel Ângelo Rocha

Miguel Ângelo Rocha’s (1964) small scale wall sculptures gather a wide variety of material, most of them being characterised by a certain form of fragility: cardboard, bamboo, feather, stone, rice paper, small objects from daily life, etc. These small compositions discreetly stand on the walls, drawing forms, volumes and colours in the space. The gaze becomes tactile. Playing with the notion of series and repetition, Rocha disseminates his works through the exhibition space. The sculptures punctuate the space, appearing and disappearing, following the journey of the viewer.
