In the midst of climate and environmental crisis, I found out that Fondazione Berengo has chosen a work of mine to express the urgency of aligning ourselves collectively and becoming aware of our role as beings immersed in nature. Earth Banquet, was the proposal I took on as a guest artist for Glasstress 2019 in Murano. Fondazione’s post reminds me, so strikingly, that here or there, our problems have a global scale and that these allegiances can be our strength.
And speaking of allegiances, the National Museum of the Republic, thanks to a partnership between the Biennial Foundation and the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy (Secec), will exhibit Island Brasilis, a work I made for the 33rd Bienal of São Paulo – Affective Affinities. Roaming, is the incredibly significant name that this initiative received. The exhibition runs from August 29th to October 13th. But on August 30th I will be there at a round table, talking, of course, about Island Brasilis, Language of the Stone and how the phenomena that occur inside the planet can serve as metaphors for our own development, on top of proposing ways and means for humanity in these difficult times!
Hope to see you there for a coffee!
