Hailing from Brazil, conceptual artist Tatiana Blass works across the media of installation, sculpture, film and painting. She utilizes a wealth of disciplines to explore the distortion of everyday objects and occurrences. In these selected works, Blass manipulates commonplace items to uselessness and elevates them to the realm of the surreal, presenting a series of encounters with optical illusion, obscured perspective and missing parts. The artist reduces the body of a marble horse to its hooves, a car becomes immersed in a driveway and a figure of wax is melted to reveal a bronze spine within. As she contorts expressions of reality, Brass draws on themes of permanence, duration and truth, providing a catalyst for the breakdown of communication.
