The collective exhibition Volumetries presents works by artists Beth Jobim, José Bechara, José Bento, Raul Mourão and Waltercio Caldas.
The concept of volumetry in architecture can be defined as a set of dimensions that determine the volume of a construction.
In the exhibition Volumetries we can see a set of works / volumes that, simultaneously and intrinsically, determine not only their own dimensions, but also reconfigure and resize the architectural space in which they are inserted.
The works, while presenting formal and constructive similarities, differ in their various ways of insertion into space: balance, accumulation, movement, tension, weight and chromatism.
In this way we can observe that the spatial occupation imposed by the works transitions between the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional, in a tension between the floor and the wall from which they always seem to arise.
When observing these works / volumes, we can also perceive them as counter-forms of themselves, since the empty spaces that form around, inside or even outside them seem to reconfirm their presence in the exhibition space. We could think that each of these works / volumes, in its own way, presents its own code and a way of dialoguing with architecture.
