CROSS RESIDENCY - Porto

João Pedro Trindade

03.06 > 03.07.21

Clermont-Ferrand

Born in 1990, lives and works in Porto, Portugal

 

João Pedro Trindade has a particular way of looking at objects. Attracted by seemingly innocuous shapes

and patterns, he literally scrutinizes every nook, every roughness and every texture to reveal their qualities.

He then hugs the forms and counterforms with different materials, which sometimes resemble packaging,

sometimes second skins, but whose material inevitably refers to the world of consumption. If we consider

that the skin is a communicating organ between the inside and the outside of our body, then João Pedro

Trindade's skin-envelopes are surfaces of visual communication. They evoke the objects they come from

while transforming them into images of themselves, questioning our universe

of appearance and representation.
