O Falso Ready-Made

A Relevāncia do Suporte na Pintura

Editorial

Carlos Mensil is a Portuguese visual artist based in Porto whose work explores illusions and de-illusions, playing with our perception. 
 
For his master thesis object, in which he explored the relevance of the support on painting, we’ve played with the 'support' concept. The master thesis cover resulted as a subtle joke, since it’s the only place where Carlos ever used canvas in is whole work.
 
We decided to join both parts of his thesis - theoretical and practical - in one single object making a reversal book in which one side contains the investigation and the other a catalog with the work developed.
 
We dare you to try to find out what’s real and what's not!

The first time I worked with Black Unicorns was shortly before my master thesis defence. I was looking for an object that could make a link between theoretical and practical work, consistent with the convictions I was exploring in my research. BU wore my shoes in such a way that the work couldn't be more in line with my expectations. From the idea to the materialisation of the object, from the studio to the printer, from the fabric shop to the bookbinder, I'm sure we couldn't have done better.The first time I worked with Black Unicorns was shortly before my master thesis defence.
