Mercedes Viegas Gallery presents the solo show of the artist Beatriz Carneiro, “Your bone is stone“, curated by John Paul Quintella.
The artist presents a series of works especially realized for the exhibition, which will occupy the two floors of the Gallery.
These works are realized in mixed media: on paper, as prints, photographs and photogravure, but also objects, sculptures and installations in organic materials.
In the curator’s words “there is a persistence, a fusion between the living and the nonliving. Wood, iron, concrete and skin are elements of the same existence”.
Beatriz Carneiro was born in Rio de Janeiro. She is graduated in visual arts in the HEAD – École de Hautes Etudes d’Art et Design Geneva, Switzerland. The artist has explored different media: installation, painting, sculpture and photography. She combines organic and industrial materials using various techniques. She currently works and lives in Rio de Janeiro.
