Photographic group exhibition “Poder provisório” on view

(São Paulo, Brazil) Curated by photographer Eder Chiodetto, “Poder provisório” [“Temporary power’] aims at discussing the instance of power in different social life spheres, through documental images and conceptual artworks, mostly of a political nature, which use photography as medium. In order to see the exhibition, visitors must walk through a portal and are invited to zigzag through the photographs, in a different architecture from that of the room’s original conception, “reforcing the idea of convulsion and entropy that emerges from the pieces and manifests itself in the exhibition space”, says the curator.
