GALÁXIAS [GALAXIES]

Antonio Dias and Haroldo de Campos

Conceived by Antonio Dias, together with poet Haroldo de Campos (1929-2003) in the early 1970s, “galáxias” has the same name as the famous poem-book of the concretist poet. More than 40 years later, the project has the participation of designer Lucia Bertazzo for its production.

 

The edition of 93 copies in a large format – 70cm x 50cm, 7cm thick – “galáxias” consists of a fiberglass case covered in fabric (each numbered and signed by the artist).

 

Inside the case are 32 graphic works, grouped and enclosed in 10 wooden boxes with a skin motiv print, a recurrent theme in the artist’s work.

 

These objects of art – all processed by hand – follow the artistic career of Antonio Dias during the 1970s. An artist’s book? More than that: a true art installation in a box!

  

The production of "galáxias", by UQ / Aprazível Edições, required four years of careful work, with hundreds of trials and prototypes, and a huge diversity of materials used: fabric, acrylic, foam, plastic, cotton, parchment. Printing was also in a variety of forms such as typography, hot stamping, silkscreen and au pouchoir.
