Célio Braga

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 1 August - 30 October 2018

In general my work concerns the fragility of the human body in relation to the passing of time.
They are works about love, desire, loss, death and mourning which are constantly shifting between shimmering hopefulness, formalism, bold decoration, concentrated minimalism, existential torment and abstraction.
I employ a variety of techniques that involve a continual process of cutting, performing, rearranging, assembling, scanning, destroying and repairing papers, textiles, wax and photographs.
The works are often bold and melodramatic, sometimes silent, and always in search of a balance between excess and austerity.
