Victoria Miro is delighted to announce TRANS, an exhibition by Maria Nepomuceno featuring a vibrant and seductive series of sculptural installations and interventions.


For this exhibition, the Rio de Janeiro-based Nepomuceno expands her characteristically dynamic approach to form, using traditional methods of rope weaving and straw braiding as well as techniques of her own design. The works in TRANS extend the artist’s interest in biomorphic and organic development, and emphasise the interconnectedness of the individual object and its environment.

Since the early 2000’s Maria Nepomuceno has applied and developed a method of sewing coils of coloured rope in spiral configurations. Over time her constructions have become increasingly complex, creating installations that fill rooms or extend beyond the exhibition space and into their surrounding landscapes. Certain forms recur in Nepomuceno’s work, including vessels, hammocks, beads, bulbs, and tubes, but the spiral always remains the central and unifying motif.
