Pablo de Laborde Lascaris is a Mexican Sculptor based between the United Kingdom and Mexico City.
Pablo’s work challenges the functionality of day-to-day objects through the orchestration of specific dialogues between entities. He creates artifacts that either suggest a reinterpreted use, or objects that are made obsolete by the alteration of their shape, scale or material. His deliberate act of depriving an item of its actual purpose questions the traditional qualities of sculpture by destabilising them within their historical contexts.
Pablo holds a BA in Sociology and Anthropology (Montreal, Quebec, CA) and a First Class BA (Hons) in Fine art (University College Falmouth, UK).
He was the winner of the International Emerging Artist Award (2013), the recipient of Royal Society of Sculptors Bursary Awards (2012), and was a finalist in Sculpture Shock, Royal British Society of Sculptors (2014).
Recent residencies have included; Cananea Residency, Sonora, Mexico (2017); Bavaria Residency, Germany (2016); & Artist-in-Residence at Christ's Hospital school, Horsham, UK (2011-13).
