Me Como el Mundo

Didier Fiúza Faustino

Paseo del Espolón – Concéntrico 09

Me como el mundo is a proposal turning digital social media into analogue. It stands as a mobile device offering people a forum in public space to speak out in front of a physical audience.

Climbing a stair from backstage, anyone can come to light and play the role he wants: guru, social activist, stand up actor, singer, poet… Beyond the 15 minutes showtime, Me como el mundo stresses the importance of physical relationships and breaks up the illusion of fame sustained by the digital world. The glittering platform highlights the disarray of the lonely preacher as well as the foolishness of the popular speaker, only galvanized by his audience.
Life is a cabaret!

Didier Fiúza 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.

Recently completed and ongoing projects — both private and public commissions — include the XYZ Lounge in Ghent (2017), the atelier of French artist Jean-Luc Moulène in the Normandie (2022), a housing complex in Leiria, a winery in Tondela in the Dão region and a villa in Falesia, in the Algarve, as well as the scenography of the first retrospective in Germany of the Portuguese/British artist Paula Rego (1935 – 2022) at the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover (opening October 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, FRACs Centre et Nord Pas-de-Calais, Serralves Foundation.

He has received the Pierre Cardin Prize (Architecture) of the Academy of Fine Arts / Institut de France in 2018 and the Dejean Silver Medal of the French Academy of Architecture in 2010, and is part of the French Design 100.

Didier Fiúza Faustino is represented by Michel Rein Paris / Brussels and Galeria Filomena Soares in Lisbon.
