The work of Daniel Frota de Abreu combines sculpture, video and publication in installations that establish aesthetic and political relations with its context. His practice brings together sculptural gestures and issues addressed by the history of science, anthropology and speculative fiction. In that sense, the artist works with the circulation and deterioration of materials, investigating communication failures and limits of legibility.
