André Komatsu (Sao Paulo,1978).

 Part of the generation that grew up with the resumption of democracy in Brazil and saw neoliberalism implemented by economic policies in the 1990s. “The discourse on power and social conflicts, more or less latent, permeates the materials, influences their choice, and constitutes, in a way, the true raw material of André Komatsu’s sculptures and installations. Many of the titles chosen by the artist echo Foucauldian reminiscences, which exemplifies the way in which Michel Foucault’s theory of the microphysics of power, beyond the titles, is at the heart of his concerns and even, one could say, of his worldview”, Jacopo Crivelli Visconti.
