(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
As part of the Research Project course, EAV, the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage presents works by AoLeo, Carolina Martinez, Eduardo Masini, Evandro Machado, Fernanda Terra, Marcelo Jácome, Nanna Pôssa, Solange Venturi and Ursula Tautz in the group show “A questão do espaço na arte” (The space question in art).
In 2013, the course coordinated by Glória Ferreira and Luiz Ernesto addressed the subject of space in the current context, its profusion and multiple interactions with aesthetic production. The Research Project has the general aim of encouraging exchanges between guests of different fields of study and research. The classes promote theory and practice insights on issues which regard art and its relationship with the world.
The exhibition convey the variety in techniques and medias chosen by the participating artists: AoLeo intervenes with “Plano vazado”; Carolina Martines presents an artwork done with acrylic paint on wood and the installation “Rotação” (Rotation); Evandro Machado works with lighting, while Eduardo Masini uses slides with sound; Fernanda Terra presents a window entitled “Não é casa e também não habita”.
PIPA 2014 Nominee, Marcelo Jácome builds a web made of ribbons, cotton threads and wool, with different widths and colours, in the installation “Seções espaço-temporais” (Space-time sections). Nana Pôssa displays “Saturno devorando um filho II” (Saturn eating a child II), a large photo-installation; Solange Venturi’s media is human hair, which covers an entire wall and Ursula Tautz will occupy the main entrance hall with a photographic montage.
