Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca: Swinguerra
Curated by: Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro
Presented by: the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Citizenship
The show consists of a two-channel video installation featuring the film commissioned for the occasion and, in the smaller room, a site-specific installation with portraits of the participants of the new work. The pavilion thus reflects, in two different mediums, the same artwork. Swinguerra takes the hybrid form of a musical documentary that creates an ambiguous space where fictional and documentary dimensions are blended, creating a third territory of language.
