About

"In between senses and matter, lies a tension which holds things together.
Within this gap I build a shelter."


The investigation of the tactile dimension and the transformation of matter are major departure points in Paloma Bosquê’s research. The physical presence of her sculptures and installations makes us question the place of the visible as a known universe. In her practice, materiality works as a channel to access a dimension that lies beyond language.

Through the association of minerals, vegetable fibers, lead, pigments, and wax, among other materials, the artist deepens her relationship with the signs and materials that constitute what we understand as the non-human universe, questioning the limits between the natural and the artificial, the animate and the inanimate, with the understanding that what we see is only a small part of what supports the material existence of things. Everything else is a transient agreement in constant transformation.

Paloma Bosquê (Garça, 1982) lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.
Her most recent solo exhibitions include Dark Matter, Blum and Poe, Tokyo (2020); In the Hot Sun of a Christmas Day, Mendes Wood DM, New York (2019); Inventory, Mendes Wood DM, Brussels (2018); O Oco e a Emenda, Pavilhão Branco, Museu da Cidade, Lisbon (2017); Field, Mendes Wood DM, São Paulo (2016); O Incômodo, Pivô, São Paulo (2015).
