Superposing layers of meaning and materials, Sergio Verastegui develops a body of work where he tends to write the fragment within sculptural forms. With a strong presence of the materiality but also supporting the conceptual rigour, his works are to be considered as pieces of reality extracted from a torn world. In the chance meeting of various objects, emerging situations of fragility, between narrative tension and poetry, traces and accidents.
Sergio Verastegui graduated at Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, Rio de Janeiro (BR) and then at Villa Arson, Nice. He has recently exhibited at Institut Français (Madrid), CAPC (Bordeaux); Dienstgebäude (Zurich); MAMCO, Geneva (SW); Meetfactory (Prague); Salon (Madrid) and Casa Imelda (Mexico City).

His works can be found in the collections of CNAP, MAMCO, FRAC Bretagne, CAPC Bordeaux, FRAC Île-de-France, and FRAC-Artothèque Nouvelle Aquitaine.
