As the title – Mármore (Portuguese for marble) – suggests, the exhibition concentrates on Camargo’s work in this medium. The reductive nature of his work can be likened to that of Sol LeWitt, Robert Ryman and Lucio Fontana; planes of marble cut across one another, effortlessly elegant and poised with geometric and conceptual precision. The white and black marble offers densely unforgiving and pure works, both majestic and domestic in scale, that sit among wooden wall relief works.
This exhibition has been conceived in association with the artist’s estate and Galeria Raquel Arnaud, São Paulo.
