Another point in the same line and three points that don ́t belong to the same line is Daniel Steegmann Mangrané's current solo exhibition at Múrias Centento in Lisbon. The installation consists of suspended life-size screens made from laser-cut steel. This work uses a simplified geometric shape that is mirrored, pivoted and turned to create a pattern whose rules of construction are not immediately recognizable but adhere to a consistent self-imposed set of operations. Consequently, the shape, a rectangle from which one corner has been removed, creates a geometric pattern. The screen can be perceived both as division and as a framing device.
Daniel Steegmann Mangranéʼs work focuses on the creation and migration of forms between different formal registers in nature, art and architecture. His work often draws attention to the uncanny correspondences between organic and geometric shapes but also highlights the arbitrariness of the distinction made between organic and man-made forms.
