Cildo Meireles

(born 1948)

Cildo Meireles is a brazilian conceptual artist considered one of the foremost contemporary artists of Latin America.

“Remember that the work is not what we see in a museum exhibition. It’s not the bank notes or the Coca-Cola bottles. These objects are only relics. The work itself has no materiality. And it is ephemeral. It only exists when someone is interacting with it. In this respect, it’s much more connected with the concept of the anti-object or the nonobject.”
