Simon Fujiwara at Calouste Gulbenkain Museum, Lisbon
Simon Fujiwaras’s works ‘New Pompidou’ (2014) and ‘Rebekkah’ (2012) are on show at the group exhibition ‘Infinite Sculpture. From the Antique Cast to the 3D Scan’ at Calouste Gulbenkain Museum in Lisbon, Portugal. This exhibition brings together sculptures by contemporary artists and casts from the collection of the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon, analysing the relevance of the casting technique in current artistic practices and exploring its infinite possibilities. Casting has been a way to make copies from other artworks, from life, from nature, from buildings, in the past and in the present. Casting in plaster still happens, but the exhibition has many more modern technologies on show, including 3D printing. April 24 – September 07, 2020.
