Présentation détaillée du projet

 

WHAT IS THE PROJECT ABOUT?

 

My work aims at combining and revealing the poetry of every day life but also the violence of existence and perpetual interrogations people have about the role they play within society.

 

What were our dreams before? What are they today?

 

- A parallel between what we wanted to become, what we became and what is the gap that lies in-between.

 

- A parallel between what we wanted to be, who we wanted to be and who we are now.

 

 

The project I want to develop at Largo das Artes is called "Dreams of before". It talks about what kind of dreams children have for their future depending on their social and geographical environment and draw a parallel with what were their parents' dreams as children.This way, I'd like to establish a generational thread where present ideals of children and past ideals of adults mirror themselves.  

 

What kind of representations or ideas children have about the meaning of what is a personal life accomplishment? I would like to illustrate the question we all had to answer as children : "What do you want to be when you grow up ?"

I would start the project by conducting some filmed interviews of children and their parents living in different areas of Rio, and then illustrate their answers through a series of paintings and drawings. 

A short film showing the parents with the voiceover of their children and vice versa will also be shown at the exhibition.

 

 

WHERE?

 

The residency programme takes place at LARGO DAS ARTES, a contemporary Art center in the historical city centre of Rio de Janeiro housing 10 studios, a gallery and a residency programme in a 400m2 XIX century building.

The core of my practice aims to create lyrical and abstract works of art which on the surface people can easily relate to, but yet still be challenged by the often conflicting relationship between mankind and his natural environment. I try to reveal the beauty, poetry and humour in seemingly mundane aspects of everyday life, as well as revealing... Voir la suite
