PABLO ACCINELLI (Buenos Aires, 1983) lives and works in São Paulo.
The work of Pablo Accinelli explores the functional and poetic relationship between objects and tools. The themes adressed by his artistic practice contain a simultaneously subtle and precise reference to the mundane objects that surround us. The practical application of this perspective results in the reduction of the elements and objects to their quantifiable base, leading to a manipulation of the way we witness them.
