Alexandre Da Cunha (b. 1969) has referred to his practice not as ‘making’ but as ‘pointing’. Pointing at existing objects, somehow, in plain sight, and highlighting or revealing new and unexpected facets or meanings within them. This approach has allowed him to unpick our preconceptions and instinctive responses to things and re-direct them into new areas of seeing and understanding, giving way to a lush potential, not only in interpreting his work, but also in everything we subsequently see in the world. Following up on his first show, Full Catastrophe, in 2012, Thomas Dane Gallery presents Free Fall, from 21 January.
