Entitled “Mundaréu”, Froiid’s solo show, on display at Albuquerque Contemporary Gallery, establishes a dialogue with the writer, actor, journalist and playwright Plínio Marcos (1935-1999) and his “Histórias das Quebradas do Mundaréu” (1973). 

By exploring the confabulated universe of a bar table and references linked to the dynamics of the game, multidisciplinary artist Froiid builds a visual, sound and sensorial narrative based on themes such as crime, samba, RAP, football, organized fans, artificial intelligence and violence . 

“With this living room, marked by its identity character, Froiid unfolds free time and invites us to get closer to each other, so as not to lose physical social networks and to appreciate the depth and richness of popular knowledge”, points out Ana Salazar Herrera in the curatorial text.

The exhibition is conceived as a game. As we walk through the gallery, we find playable works, with a highlight being the installation “É Hora da Onça Beber Água” (2020), a billiard table measuring around 13 meters, which invites the public to create and play with their own rules.

Froiid's production uses a diversity of materials and techniques, with paintings, photographs, drawings, videos and sound installations that explore Brazil's cultural richness.
