MAM-Rio holds Claudia Melli’s first major solo exhibition

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) Curator Luiz Camillo Osorio says of “Lugares onde nunca estive” [“Places I have never been”], “The absence of people does not imply in the absence of humans. They appear as ghosts, as an immaterial residue that creates a movement crossing many images. It is as if people have just left the scenery, transforming us into spectators of a world tired of human presence. Facing these images we end up sort of lifted up between the awareness of places we have never been and the non-places we are constantly in.”
