Making use of objects which no longer fulfill the function they were created for, as wooden boxes, tin cans or umbrellas torn apart in stormy nights, Simão Bolivar transforms materials trough a manual value adding process based upon the Portuguese/Brazilian tradition of handmade toys. Forms and mechanisms are revisited and presented in new clothing that  invites us to…play.

Reaproveitando objectos que não desempenham mais a função para a qual foram criados, como caixotes de madeira, latas ou guarda-chuvas partidos em dias de temporal, Simão Bolivar transforma materiais através de um processo manual de valorização baseado na tradição luso-brasileira dos brinquedos artesanais. Formas e mecanismos são revisitados e apresentados com novas roupagens que nos convidam a… brincar.
