With a new work of monumental dimension and a set of little-seen or unpublished works that present interventions on photographs, the artist Daniel Senise presents at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake the exhibition all saints, on view until October 13.

According to Daniela Labra, the exhibition's curator, the set shows an overlapping of languages ​​resulting from Senise's pictorial thinking. “The discourse about memory, spatiality, representation, materiality, western art history and philosophy that define Daniel Senise's post-painting” unfolds on surfaces and photographic images”, says Labra in the exhibition's presentation text.

The large-scale work, measuring 5 by 3,66 meters, contains fragments of burned material collected from inside the Villa-Lobos Theater, in Rio de Janeiro, destroyed by fire in 2011 and still closed. “In this work, photography leaves and the mirror enters as a support, reflecting the inverted real that inhabits its outside amid charred remains”, says the curator in the text.

In the other works, carried out from 2005 to 2019, there are photographs of spaces such as the former shed on Estrada de Ferro Sorocabana, the Matarazzo Hospital, or locations in Bahia and New York, among others. The photos were taken or directed by Senise with the collaboration of Mauro Restiffe, Caetano Dias, Tiago Barros and Fernando Laslo. For the curator, “layers of temporality overlap, configuring a discussion about the physicality of matter, representation, image, real, existence”.
