Diogo Gonçalves (1990) lives and works in Lisbon.
Spatiality, light, movement and energy are the raw materials of Diogo Gonçalves’ sculpture. In his work, the gesture is also the result of the confrontation of the body with the space, still being the energy, the lamp is one of the unequivocal signs, what remains of the dissolution of that same body in space. In the apparent game between two-dimensionality and three – dimensionality, sculpture is action, performative gesture, matter diluted in its own energy, the same that remakes and updates the programmatic principles of his artistic research.
Diogo has been exhibiting since 2013:
