Tonico Auad is a Brazilian artist who works between Sao Paulo and London. His practice takes stuff from everyday life and puts it though a process of material transformation.

Auad is a Brazilian artist who works between Sao Paulo and London. His practice takes stuff from everyday life and puts it though a process of material transformation. Subtle surface shifts brought about though the intervention of touch, produce artworks and situations that can be poetic and luxurious, slight, degraded, chancy, unintelligible or melancholic. Tonico is inspired by incidental daily experiences and can turn a hand to redefining a ripening bunch of bananas into an etched sculpture of a human face, or a found gold neck chain arranged as the outline of a dead human body at a homicide crime scene and the figure of an animal made from a bunch of grapes wit the fruit removed.At Project, Auad carpeted the gallery and used this as a starting point from which he developed his piece. Tonico’s playful work aims to turn the personal expression of daily experiences and perceptions into something magical. Tonico’s exhibition in Project was called ‘Moonbeam 851‘. Recent exhibitions include: Lyric Underground, Gasworks, London (2002), White Meat & Sunlite, Galerie Wiensowki & Harbord, Berlin (2002). Group shows include ‘Isobar‘, Fieldgate Gallery, London (2007) and ‘The Thaw‘, Mehr Gallery, New York (2006).

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
