Leonor Antunes participates in Museo Tamayo in Mexico City with her exhibition Discrepancies With C.P

From sculptural installations that function as interventions in space, Leonor Antunes reflects on the perception, the history of architecture, design, matter and the functionality of objects and art of the twentieth century. Her projects seek to make visible the material and spatial tensions that cohabit in one place, relocating objects and architectural elements in places that are not his usual. In this exercise she tries to give new meanings and meanings to certain elements and places, not only in a visual or aesthetic way but also in a historical one, while trying to generate another temporal and spatial context for them.

Her sculptures and interventions transform, in a certain way, the places where they are placed, and explore notions that are normally associated with the architectural, the planned and the built-such as measurement, proportion or scale. Paradoxically, Antunes has a systematic work methodology that incorporates randomness and arbitrariness as part of its raw material, which gives autonomy to the subject and gives its forms a specific meaning.
