Thirteen artists discuss sculpture and the female body

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

Anita Schwarz Galeria de Arte inaugurated this week the exhibition “Molde” (Cast), “conversations around sculpture and the female body”. The exhibition features only works in sculpture produced by 13 female artists; 4 whom have been PIPA nominees in previous editions of the Prize – Carla Guargliardi, Daisy Xavier, Estela Sokol and Lais Myrrha.

Showcasing works by established artists of renowned trajectories with prominence in the 1960’s and 1970’s as well as younger artists, the exhibition features 30 works in a variety of materials such as: clay, wood, bronze, glass, bone and marble. The show is inspired by the Venus of Willendorf, a sculpture carved out of stone of approximately 24thousand years and considered one of the most antique sculptures in humanity. The Venus is, above all, a symbol of ancestry, fertility and prospect.
