CHEAP ART /
PILHINHAS are a collection of piled things
and anything makes a good PILHINHA when piled.
An isolated object is not a PILHINHA,
but more than one object piled together is a PILHINHA.
In PILHINHAS, size matters. It's not about
the shape or the objects it comprises,
whether it's neat or messy, colorful or plain...
... it's the size that matters.
The names of the pieces reflect the
importance of size: "Hxxxx," where "H"
means height, and "xxxx" is the real
height of the PILHINHAS in millimeters.
Consequently, concerning the commercialization
of PILHINHAS, the price is directly linked to
this factor: size. PILHINHAS are sold per millimeter.
So, the purchase price of a PILHINHA
corresponds to its height in size.
PILHINHAS appropriate any obsolete object
lying around to be indiscriminately piled.
PILHINHAS feed on the excess of things.
PILHINHAS can be ephemeral or for a lifetime,
the decision lies with the one who owns them.
Each PILHINHA is unique.
PILHINHAS are not intended to be
works of art, nor functional objects.
They are what they are... PILHINHAS.
And... anything is allowed in PILHINHAS...
I use obsolete objects
to create these PILHINHAS,
so they may have some scratches
or minor damages that don't
impact the essence of the project.
