Intro
For her first solo exhibition the artist has two collections on display– Soldiers and Rhinestones - from an “unfaithful” reproduction exercise.

Artist list

Catarina Dias
In her 1st solo show Catarina Dias explores the possibilities of the technique of casting, extending its application to synthetic materials that best combine with her aesthetic option and her vision of contemporary jewelry.

In the two collections on display– Soldiers and Rhinestones – the mold thus emerges not as a basis of a reproduction process, but as part of the final product. If in Soldiers the plastic is replaced by metal through the traditional process of industrial reproduction, in Rhinestones, metal is replaced by plastic through manual techniques. Out of this “unfaithful” reproduction exercise, emerge objects of immediate recognition that despite having different characteristics preserve the meaning of the original.

Based on an attitude of reproduction and recreation - the falsification of fake - the work that Catarina Dias presents in Cera Perdida (Lost Wax) incorporates distinct materials and production techniques with a similar objective: the here and now of the original represents the concept of its authenticity.
