(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) The exhibition “O peso de cada um” presents a shift from the work that Iole de Freitas had been developing up to early 2014. The polycarbonate sheets that the artist used previously have been substituted by sheets of stainless steel, which are stronger but much more difficult to bend, requiring more intense twisting and precise engineering calculations, due to the material’s weight and stiffness.
