(Sorocaba, Brazil) In “Contingente”, Afonso Tostes reinterprets an installation he presented first in a solo exhibition, earlier this year. Bárbara Wagner sought to depict less-known religious figures in photographs using advertising techniques to point out a silent existence. Carrying a certain mystery, Bruno Vilela’s figures seem to deprive themselves from our look; they hide in thick woods and observe us from afar. Colonization is retold by Caetano Dias in a dreamlike way. Heavy with symbols, his narratives are made of emotional, collective and individual memories. The documentary called “O fim do sem fim” by Cao Guimarães presents the viewer with direct images from an uncommon reality nowadays. Like a ghost, the voice we hear in “Uotpy” whispers, shouts and echoes the fragments of two negative sentences. Malu Saddi’s drawings and objects refer to “unknowing” and understand it as motto. More than calm or peace, Raquel Stolf’s sound installation creates the uncomfortable feeling of being in a silent country.
