‘Brazilian Barqoue’ by Fernando and Humberto Campana

Fernando and Humberto Campana delight in the aesthetics of Roman classicism, translating the techniques and details used during this period into a contemporary collection of furniture for London’s David Gill Gallery. “Brazilian Baroque” – a continued exploration of the brother’s series which first began in 2010 – sees the São Paulo duo employing luxurious materials such as marble and gilded bronze. The family of sculptural, but functional pieces express a certain imperfection, a kind of seduction, that relates back to the element of recycling that is signature of estudio Campana’s work; thus, referring not only to the mediums used, but also the processes which they have revived and reconfigured, while working alongside Roman artisans. The realization of “Brazilian Barqoue” sees the Campana’s articulating the traditional skills learned into their own style and artistic language.
