Comma in Rio de Janeiro
Capela do Parque Lage, Jardim Botânico, Rio de Janeiro Brazil


"An army of Love" is the result of the artistic residence at  School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage. Photographs, videos, portraits were part of this dynamic project of artistic residence that provoked new processes of creation and connections with the past, through the use of archival images, in order to create a mystery and fantasy about the experiences of a place.

"From the inside out,
this artistic residence presents the reverbalization
by the image of the reality of the dream,
of the virtuality of the real."

The show provides a poetic reflection in search of the real, sometimes as a shadow,
as a reverberation of a world
that acquires the lightness of melancholy”.

> Artistic Residency Painted Pictures
Ceará  | Brazil

Painted Pictures is a brief essay on part of the study of the native identity of the tribes of Ceará and how they relate to Photography and Portrait.
The portraits were taken in the villages and hamlets of the State of Ceará, represented by the Pitaguary, Tapeba and Jenipapo Kanindé tribes, as were the portraits of a population which is after all of mixed native blood and deeply influenced by native culture.
Each picture has one, or many, of the words which represent a portrait, perpetuated here by the lines of Painting. For this reason we call them Painted Pictures.

From the end of the nineteeth century, some craftsmen decided to offer a little something extra to the budding technique of photography. It was, literaly, a special tint, a manual touch-up which, in time, also acquired the function of restauring the first portraits, by hand.

Symbolically, it is a reproduction and a fantasy built on memory, whether an individual memory or a tale of significant family moments, especially rites of passage. Even with a somewhat ficticious tone.

Each picture has one, or many, of the words which represent a portrait, perpetuated here by the lines of Painting.

Each portrait covers the spirituality of a people in silence. 



> Artistic Residency DRAGONS
DRAGÃO DO MAR, Fortaleza | Brazil

Poço da Draga is the slum's oldest capital city of northeastern Brazil and also one of the most organized when it comes to fight for the rights and dignity. The community is Praia de Iracema is compressed between the avenue Pessoa Anta and the sea. In the old Beach Fish, who was once fishermen and suspended mud houses, where the tide could leak, the boys of the Well Draga improvise trampolines among rubble.

The advancement of prostitution and drugs is the symptom of the decadence of Iracema beach. Today Poço da Draga fights against the speculation that it intends to transform the slum into a huge aquarium for leisure tourism.
