Sprovieri presents the second solo show in the UK by the young, award-winning Brazilian artist Matheus Rocha Pitta. Provisional Heritage is a result of the artist’s incursion into an abandoned warehouse in East London a couple of weeks before its demolition. By collecting the materials and the objects found in the warehouse, Matheus Rocha Pitta explored the process of ‘sculptural actions’ with a video and photographic registers not only of a pile of tyres covering an abandoned car, but also of the empty spaces these tyres leave behind, signalled by indexical imprints. The ‘sculptural actions’ thus involves material displacements that, in this case, become visual events in themselves.
Venue: Sprovieri, 27 Heddon Street, London W1B 4BJ
