Biography

Adriano Amaral (b. 1982, Ribeirão Preto, BR) makes site-specific installations that model the exhibition space as an encompassing experience. Amaral engages in an alchemic artistic process, employing synthetic and organic compounds as well as video, light and sound. The materials and objects in his work form rare combinations that deny a categorical logic or hierarchy and acts to decontextualize architectural spaces with a sensitivity to the viewer’s physical presence.

Adriano Amaral lives in Portugal. He obtained an MFA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London (UK) before becoming an artist-in-residence at De Ateliers, Amsterdam (NL), in 2016. Recent solo exhibitions include Rurais, Galeria Jacqueline Martins, São Paulo (BR); Skinny Goat, Galeria Múrias Centeno, Lisbon (PT) and Alloy Alloy, Vleeshal, Middelburg (NL). His group exhibitions include, Alluring shapes, Tempting spaces, curated by Domenico de Chirico, Galerie Eva Meyer, Paris (FR); Bearable Lightness of Being, GRIMM, Amsterdam (NL); and Condo, The Sunday Painter, London (UK). In 2017 he was awarded the Mondriaan Fund Working Contribution for Proven Talent. Amaral’s work is included in the collections of MUDAM, Luxembourg (LV) as well as the Ekard Collection (NL).
