From the project Insetos

Leopoldo Martins, 2021

From February 01 to April 15, 2021

The word “Insect” comes from the Latin word Insectum, meaning “with a notched or divided body”, or literally “cut into”, as theoretically described.

Based on a deep research on those parts of insects’ bodies, Leopoldo Martins found an endless universe of mathematics, engineering and art, discovering his new three-dimensional challenges for wonderful monumental sculptures.

Furthermore, in his research Leopoldo Martins also discovered the space they share, understanding that the world that we live in completed with a wide variety of insects, sharing space with us.
