To See the World, To Feel With Your Eyes

Cildo Meireles

Cildo Meireles (born 1948) uses a wide range of materials and methods in his works, which often analyse the value systems that we apply in various processes of exchange. He works both with conceptual ideas and abstract formal presentation while highlighting sensory experiences. He deploys symbols in new frameworks that change or dislocate their meanings.
Cildo Meireles lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.
