Paço Imperial participates of the Trio Bienal with two pieces: the installation “Ambos Mundos” [Both Worlds], by Gê Orthof (b. 1959, Petrópolis), and the performances “Movimento Pendular” [Pendulous Movement], held by Felippe Moraes (b. 1988, Rio de Janeiro) during the opening of the event, on September 11th.
With works by 160 artists from 44 countries, the first edition of TRIO – Rio Three-Dimensional Biennial is curated by Marcus Lontra and happens in nine art spaces in the city. All exhibited pieces approach the three-dimensional (sculpture, installation, object) and its expanded fields, such as paintings, photography, performance and video. This year’s Bienal is titled after a song by rapper Marcelo D2, “Quem foi que disse que não existe amanhã?” [Who said tomorrow doesn’t exist?], a reference to art’s utopian aspect that survives even in moments of crisis and uncertainty.
