transformations by Odires Mlászho
- Esther Jablotschkin
Odires Mlászho is an artist of transformation based in the busy centre of São Paulo, Brazil. His mission is not simply decontextualize objects but actually deep transformation of images, words and objects. Using for example books as a medium, he created a series of intricate book sculptures. Merging and twisting together the sculptures pays homage to the strip’s mathematical properties and remind us of an intertwined living creature. Odires Mlászho created the sculptures by taking thick volumes and merging them together page by page until they are inseparably bound. As a result of the weaving, the books flow into each other as if they always meant to be connected. Some of Mlászho’s works are currently on display at the Venice Art Biennale in the Brazil Pavilion.
