Alexandre Furcolin (1988), born in Campinas and living in São Paulo, initially graduated from the Faculty of Administration and Economics at USP, but has started to develop artistic research based on photography in recent years. His work today is often based on the photographic image, but taking the form of artist books, videos, installations and interventions. In addition, Furcolin also explores the language of expanded drawing, in compositions that mix writing, collages, small objects.
Among his outstanding projects are the works developed during an artistic residency at the Museu da Mutuca, in Altamira, Minas Gerais, in 2015. “Nove Horas”, for example, is a solar clock composed of a Macaúba palm tree, dry leaves and lime, which marks the time between 08:00 and 17:00. Other works mapped the movements and cycles of nature, such as “Studies of orbits” and “Study for displacement”. In this research, sciences such as cartography and astrology guide poetic interpretations of these natural movements and the laws that govern the universe. In “Carne”, a 2016 book, Furcolin prioritizes the role of the body in the vocabulary of the images he uses in the visual narrative of the sequence of shots, mixing landscapes, body topographies and the word.
