Anotnio Tarsis opens “Symbolic genocide”

(London, UK)

Antonio Tarsis, PIPA Prize 2020 nominee, is now represented by Carlos/Ishikawa Gallery, in London, UK. To consolidate the partnership, he opens on May 29th, 2021, a solo show at the institution. “Symbolic genocide” is due to July 3rd.

According to The Art Newspaper, “on view are two bodies of work by the Brazilian artist Antonio Tarsis, one based on matchboxes, loaded symbols in particular Brazilian communities, which he recovers and builds into abstract landscapes, and the other a series of tapestries where military police symbols gradually disappear in sequences of images, as a response to police brutality in Tarsis’s homeland”.
