The show “Marola, Mariola and Marilola” presents the first endeavors as sculpturess of painter par excellence, Beatriz Milhazes.
Her characteristic motifs – the circle, the flower and the arabesque – fill up the room in three large tri-dimension installations, establishing a new type of corporeal, physical relationship among them. The three sculptures name the show; and as it usually occurs in Milhazes’ works, the titles are interesting reading keys. Marola, refers to ripples on the sea, to the notion of a constant and seductive movement; Mariola, a popular sweet from Northeast Brazil; Marilola plays with sonority, a playful word game.
