UNEXPECTED BEAUTY

 

Through the CONNECT Series, Fontoura Alzaga reconciles her lifelong interchanges between the U.S., Mexico and Brazil. It was her family’s antique collections and aesthetically juxtaposing décor in Mexico City that led her to explore the proposition of an object’s third life [...] 

 

She reveals a third function of materials through the series: an object first has an original purpose; second, becomes trash; then, from her perspective, the object’s purpose can be renewed a third time. The chandelier itself becomes a metaphor of reclaimed power.
