Caroline Mesquita’s oeuvre is amongst the most significant in modern-day sculpture. Her fascinating body of work encompasses figuration, installation and the moving image, in an effort to bear witness to the important ways in which artists deal with volumes, bodies and space. As she seeks out a multifaceted, constantly changing identity, she questions the boundaries of the bodies and the materials that she uses.
Ideas, her first monograph, brings together sketches, installation shots and a wealth of documentation, as well as an in-depth analysis of her practice. The publication highlights her unique process of making art, from the conception of an idea to the finished work, and from the deconstruction and re-assembling of her characters’ identities to the relentless creation of different worlds.
The extensive visual content is complemented by a critical essay by curator Fernanda Brenner, a reflective essay by curator Loïc Le Gall, and an interview with curator Guilherme Blanc, in an endeavor to provide a comprehensive overview of Mesquita’s output and frame of reference.

The book is co-published with Galeria Municipal do Porto / Ágora – Cultura e Desporto do Porto, E.M. and Passerelle Centre d’art contemporain, Brest.
