“Drama O’Rama: Other Scenes” is Ana Mazzei’s large-scale installation

From June 11th until June 27th, you can visit Drama O’Rama: Other Scenes, a large-scale installation and Ana Mazzei’s first commission for a public institution in Scotland. It is part of the Glasgow International festival of contemporary visual art, which comprises over 70 exhibitions and events, performances and talks over 30 spaces across the city and online, showcasing work by over 100 artists. The festival’s theme is Attention, which invites us to think about how we pay attention to things and people around us, and the place of art in this.

Check out bellow the release text of “Drama O’Rama: Other Scenes”:

“The Brazilian artist presents a series of work over two floors, where abstracted sculptural forms pertain to states of mind, and taken together suggest an open-ended narrative.

An unfurled temple stands in the shape of a semicircle, having survived an unnamed disaster. Is this a confrontational encounter between the forms and viewer, or a staged architectural background for our own private narratives to play out on?  Other works congregate in groups, invoking both formalist sculptural exercises and fragments of characters, lost in unidentified stories.

Offering shifts in perspective and viewpoint, the installations create a deliberate sense of somehow being caught in a choreographed game, with sculptures that take on their own vocabulary of forms, conjuring half-remembered episodes or fragmented mythologies”.
