(Penzance, Cornwall, United Kingdom) “3am: Wonder, Paranoia and the Restless Night” draws us to an hour of ultimate freedoms. An installation by Sandra Cinto presents galaxies of stars drawn on layers of unfurling cloth and some children’s spinning tops. In porcelain sculptures by Rachel Kneebone, tangled heaps of arcing limbs are charged with sexual urgency. Tonico Lemos Auad’s installation of suspended white lace orbs, called Sleepwalker, suggests a floating between-state.
(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) These are the last days to visit the photographer Renan Cepeda’s solo exhibition. For over two decades the artist has investigated the limits of the infrared radiation that makes up the spectrum of light. This invisible frequency that made it possible for Cepeda to explore haunting and dreamlike results on the predominantly natural landscape profile of the Guanabara bay.
(Mexico City, Mexico) “The Theater of the World” gathers works by, among others, Nathan Coiley, Marjolijn Dijkman and Anri Sala. Whether it is to boost tourism, to complete political promises or to encourage nationalism, the architecture of a city is often ornamented to demonstrate progress. Ever since the representation of nations at the World Fair’s from the XIX century, to the post-war urban renovation projects, buildings raise as artificial monuments that later become obsolete even when they disguise the urban reality.
