Sculptures by Monica Piloni

Sculptures by Monica Piloni

Monica Piloni uses figurative shapes to discuss issues such as sexuality/repression and appearance/alienation, creating a new version of characters/objects commonly used in art history or in the advertisement market, and that have become symbols of the banal and classic. Dolls, horses, ballerinas, contortionists and chantilly are drawn from their common places and displaced in antagonistic combinations that multiply the possibilities of new images and reflections.

The near absence of structural supports provokes feelings of unbalance and even certain uneasiness from some perfectly shaped figures, but others aberrant. The volume is almost always located on the upper part of the sculptures, increasing the spatial tension. Some allow new rearrangements or disarrangements and repetition raises questionings about the infinite and the monotony of the macrocosmic and microcosmic points of view.

The artwork also carries certain morbidity, mixed with slight clichs from the erotic iconography, including many symbols and a miscellany of styles carried by our subconsciousness. These styles and symbols are what we ultimately give back to the environment either in a concrete existence or abstract essence.

Piloni was born in 1978 in Curitiba, PR, Brazil. Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.

Piloni is exhibiting in “Clairvoyance”, a collaborative exhibition between Guy Hepner and AXD. The third exhibition of this collective series, the exhibition presents a collection of the most trending artists currently online, and explore the current fascination of social media, technology and the contemporary artist.
