Rafael Bqueer, "Adorno Político"

Brazilian artists inquiry the social role of the body

(Porto, Portugal)

“Adorno Político” (Political Adornment), a collective exhibition curated by Tales Frey, questions the freedom each body has to express itself autonomously. At Maus Hábitos, in Porto, nine Brazilian artists present their artwork based on exploring how ones bodies may “refuse the homogeneity of a neutralised mass by the tyranny of aesthetic and behavioural patterns, challenging us to think about the place left to individual identities and subjectivities in contemporary societies”.

For that, André Parente, Andressa Cantergiani, Lenora de Barros, Lyz Parayzo, Nino Cais, Priscilla Davanzo, Rafael Bqueer, Suelen Calonga and Tiago Sant’Ana play some performances and present body arts, photos and videos that aim to answer “How can we live in harmony in such a singular and distinctive society?”, a social and political question that reflects on how it is to be black, trans or women in Brazil. The exhibition analyses how people may truly express their sentiments on a uniformer society.
