(Amsterdam, Netherlands) The works by Laura Belém, Débora Bolsoni, Cristiano Lenhardt, Matheus Rocha Pitta and Sara Ramo seem to share the same fabric as “The Aleph” since their matter surpasses their individual contexts without surrendering their specificness by exploring local aspects through a complex layering of references grounded by their cultural context.
