Rio de Janeiro - Exhibition


Centro Cultural Correios Rio de Janeiro

14 Oct 201513 Dec 2015

Vértice [Vortex] departs from the Sérgio Carvalho’s collection to present more than 200 works by 62 Brazilian contemporary artists. Three curators from different locations and generations – Marília Panitz, Polyanna Morgana and Marisa Mokarzel – proposed each of them their selection, creating a hybrid exhibition composed of three distinct curatorial visions, opening a discussion about the multiple possibilities inherent to a collection.

The exhibition is organized in three sections: “Accounts”, “Constructions” and “Amazements”. The first one is curated by Marília Panitz and gather works that problematize displacements to see and depict the world. The works have a political and anthropological bias, and many time challenge artistic languages by “invading” other fields of knowledge. “Constructions”, the curatorship of Polyanna Morgana, looks at works that are related to the historical heritage of the Russian constructivist Vladimir Tatlin (1885 – 1953, Russia), who, in a series of spatial sculptures from 1914, elaborated a reflection about the constructive aspect of the work of art. This section comprises photographs, sculptures, videos and installations in which one recognizes a reflexive and self-critical approach of art.

Finally, “Amazements”, curated by Marisa Mokarzel, creates a space for secrets, hidden aspects of things, cruel and ludic, approaching both oneiric places as nightmares, violence as delicacies. The works displayed here create an unstable place where reality and fiction are one.
