didier faustino

Didier Fiúza Faustino [1968, Chennevières-sur-Marne, France] is an artist-architect and the director of Mésarchitecture studio based between Lisbon and Paris.
His work explores the relationship between body and space through installations, sculptures, scenographies, films, editorial projects, temporary architecture, and built-work — provoking the formal and conceptual demarcations between architecture, design, and art through a devout focus on the body as central architectural concern.

He recently had his first institutional retrospective exhibition at the maat - Museum of Art, Architecture, and Technology [Lisbon, 05/10/22 - 06/03/23] for which he designed the exhibition space. He completed as well in 2022 the exhibition design of the Portuguese/British artist Paula Rego [the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover, the atelier of French artist Jean-Luc Moulène in the Normandie and launched a new book, Architecture for Disquiet Bodies [Lars Müller Publishers, 2022].

Faustino’s work has been widely published and exhibited internationally, and collected by major institutions such as Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian, Fonds National d’Art Contemporain, MAXXI, MoMA, Musée National d’Art Moderne / Centre Georges Pompidou, MAAT, Serralves Foundation, among others.

He was awarded last year the prestigious French government honor of « Chevalier des Arts et Lettres » and is part of the French Design 100.
