This summer, in July, I’ve been invited to take part in the exhibition in the MASP (Museum of Art of Sao Paulo), in Brasil.
The show was curated bt Baixo and Eduardo from Choque cultural gallery, together with Danilo from BaseV.
I stayed one month in residency, working in the museum beside SPACE INVADER, JR, SWOON, POINT, DEFI,TEC & CHU.
CICLO. Acrylic on wood. 8x23m. 2011. Sao Paulo. BRASIL.
This mural show part of the story of a human being who can be anyone, anywhere, anywhen. It’s about cycles in Life. Since ever.
The eternal movement that rules any particules in the universe. Those that compose ourselves, such as those that part any form elsewhere.
The first step of the action, is a standing man, holding a key. His mind connected to the universe. The moon and sun sharing space beside his head. The first word is “Desde”, which means “since”.
CICLO. Mural in MASP. Sao Paulo. 2011. 8x23m (work in progress)
In front of him, a white inner door. Full of light, or emptyness. Thanks to the key he’s holding, he enter. See, act and go. Then he’s laying down, immobile. A tree comes out of his body, and his soul crosses the bridge to the other side.
LITTLE DEATH. Detail of MASP’s mural.
After the falling of the body and the taking of the soul, the body and soul come back to Life, one out of the burial, the other from the hole of subconsciousness.
In his hand, a red dot is giving birth to the diamond of Life.
Above it, you can read the word “Ciclo” which meas “LOOP” . The Last word of the painting is “ATE”, or “UNTILL”. Then, another keyhole, to open.
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE MOVEMENT.
