Didier Fiúza Faustino

Eyes on Talents member, Didier Fiúza Faustino, surveys almost thirty years of practice in the exhibition EXIST/RESIST at the MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, Lisbon, Portugal. Taking its title from two separate pieces (Exist, 2016; Resist, 2017) the exhibition reveals a propelling tension present throughout Faustino’s creative explorations and its continued resonance in face of the aggravating conditions of physical and mental survival in the world today. Whether taking the shape of installations, films, sculptures, editorial projects, temporary architecture, or built-work, the “body” there emerges as a recurring trope and measure of individuation and, as such, as an economic and political site of struggle.
Didier Fiúza Faustino is a French-Portuguese experimentalist whose work has consistently provoked and transgressed the formal and conceptual demarcations between architecture, design and art.
