This autumn Kupfer is hosting the artist Mirela Cabral for a 3-month residency, which will culminate in the artist’s first UK solo exhibition in January 2023.
Mirela Cabral (b. 1992, Brazil) is an artist whose practice spans across drawing, painting and embroidery. She holds a BA in Social Communications with a major in Film from FAAP in São Paulo. Cabral has also attended art programmes at Parsons Paris, NYFA and UCLA. The artist is currently represented by Paulo Darzé Galeria in Salvador (Bahia). Selected solo exhibitions include 'Prelúdio' (Kogan Amaro Gallery, Switzerland, 2021) and 'Rebento' (Kogan Amaro Gallery, Brazil, 2021).
Over the course of her residency at Kupfer, Mirela has been working on blurring the boundaries between abstraction and figuration in her work. Recently she has started to consider sculpture and writing in her practice which Kupfer complements with assigning tutorials and giving her insides into new materials. The artist is also investigating the coexistence of nature and the urban environment: she is especially interested in how they are both perceived as separate entities but actually exist in parallel to each other and often overlap when we experience the world around us.
Join us for Mirela’s Open Studio day on 3 December 2 - 6 pm, it would be a great opportunity to meet the artist in person and see works in process for the first time before her January show! No prior booking necessary.
