Historic poems by Augusto de Campos (b. 1931, São Paulo) were transposed from paper to noble materials for this show, as to emphasise their permanence in the universes of literature and art.
To the narrative structure of poems from the series EX POEMAS (1980s) was added a new material support: an aluminium plate instead of paper, creating a dialogue with their original printing with metallic ink. A selection of new pieces completes the show, offering a broad view of the artist’s production.
