(São Paulo, Brazil)
The Modern Art Museum of São Paulo continue with the “Projeto Parede” [“Wall Project”] and invites Wagner Malta Tavares to present the installation “Círios”, that will occupy the Museum’s space until June 21st.
The project “Círios” was elaborated by the artist after he read a poem by greek poet Konstantínos Kaváfis. Little incandescent led lights will be placed on the walls, each one distanced 50 meters from another, composing a shape similar to a ruler. The presence of people changes the operation of the piece. Every time someone starts the path, the lights will ignite and turn off from where the first person came and the second is. The mix of scrolled times is important for the work: our relationship with time also modifies with the presence of others. MAM-SP’s Projeto Parede invites two artists each year to occupy the access hallway between the Museum’s lobby and the large exhibition hall.
