Galeria Marilia Razuk presents a new installation by Rodrigo Bueno: “A Ferro e Fogo” (Desdobramentos) (“The Iron and Fire (Splits)“) a work composed of composed of iron bars of various dimensions and natural elements like roots, plants and woods. The work is an offshoot of Rebentos series – first presented at Museu da Casa Brasileira in 2014 – designed specially for room 2, which is smaller and more versatile space used for special projects at the gallery.
The exhibition’s title refers to the way the artist works with raw materials, cutting and welding the used material that he collects from old welder. The installation has symbolic meanings that lie in dance and can be perceived as a part of art and design. This means that the grids, originally used as hedging instruments and territory demarcation, have their first subverted function. As the artist explains,”My work speaks of urban memory through archaeological remains of the city itself. I am recounting a story in another way, by inserting a reflection on the origin and trans materiality myth.”
