About

„ (…) inspired by a phrase by Eva Hesse, and by the title of the catalogue of an exhibition held at the Solomon R. Gugenhein Museum of New York, Abstraction in the Twentieth Century: Total Risk, Freedom and Discipline, commissioned by Mark Rosenthal, I have decided to contribute to the reading of the work of Pedro Pascoinho departing from the title of that exhibition and by changing its order: Liberty, Discipline and Total Risk. (…)

The works presented at this exhibition follow this line. Works such as Contraption, Entrance, Annull/Void, Remnant I, Remannat II, Erase, Withraw Extraction, Order show the artist’s capacity to take risk and to develop a new line of work, based on the past research on figuration but which, it seems, approaches formal abstraction. Abstraction in the sense of leaving behind a restrict representation based on a narrative typical of figuration, to propose new visual paths (…)

These works presented at Acervo how a shift in the work of Pedro Pascoinho towards the abandonment of the world of appearances and the entrance into the world of a style of its own in which depuration is clearly a subject.“
