Fundación Alumnos47 has decided to transform the architectural project by Didier Fiuza Faustino to a new form to make it evolve towards a more extense, movable, adaptable form with new possibilities. This decision is the consequence of the local administrative procedures, which considerably slow down the construction of the project. Lire la suite…

[2001] Love_me_tender-01

The architect Didier Fiúza Faustino has been shaking up reality in order to reveal intimacy since 2000. Examples include a passenger compartment for frail bodies undergoing a perilous migratory transit, a tiny basketball court perched mid-air at the end of a sculptural staircase and a three floor building for a single person located on a tiny square metre in the heart of the most expensive cities in the world. Faustino presents solitude among the multitude highlighting the need for community. He constructs for and around the body to present his real subject: society that must be interacted with at all costs. Lire la suite…

[2007] Temps_sauvages_et_incertains-01Galerie Michel Rein is proud to present the third solo show of Didier Fiúza Faustino from october 20th to december 17h.  Didier Fiúza Faustino has been working for many years on the cusp of art and architecture, between space and sculpture. We know that, with this artist, the said barrier is capable of great contortions  which further aggravate the discomfort of the on straddling in this way. The theme of the exhibition MY CRAFTS is very precisely that of uncertain seating and denied commodities. Ten works made over the last sixteen years, which we have difficulty calling “chairs” as they mishandle not only our bodies but also and foremost the categories established by design theorists and other decorative art specialists. Ten works to be further considered as milestones in Faustino’s work, formations which appeared during his spatial work and were then integrated into this or that installation or associated with this or that building site.
