(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
The gallery Artur Fidalgo galeria holds from today until June the new solo show by Camila Soato, “Uma diva, uma louca, uma macumbeira, meu deus ela é demais!”. The exhibition is part of the Circuito Integrado de Galerias de Artes [Art Galleries Integrated Circuit].
Artist Camila Soato presents a new solo show at Artur Fidalgo galeria, with 50 brand new paintings in different sizes, in which extravagant scenes expose the social and political nonsense that we live in. With a malicious and unusual narrative, Soato penetrates into the complexity of what seems banal. The artist uses jokes to unravel moral contradictions through daily life situations. Her self-portrait rises in bizarre situations, sometimes animals masks, along with water gallons, eating a enormous chicken, taking selfies with a cellphone during sex, next to a pressure cooker, in themes of the feminist universe, macumba (Afro-Brazilian religions), and fantasy.
