Details

O Faap Brazilian Art Museum opens the exhibition Latency, by the Brazilian artist Dee Lazzerini. Curated by Laerte Ramos, the exhibition features around 250 works, including installations, sculptures and audiovisual. Among them, 110 works are in small formats, sculptures created in polyurethane and 'pinched' with thousands of pins, the artist's main trademark.

“Latency is when something is about to happen, just before its climax”, explains the artist. “It is an instant of time of absolute suspension before laughter, crying, birth or death,” he says. The use of thousands of pins sets the tone of the exhibition and is its trademark. “The pin for me is my ink. It means a synthesis, it is the beginning of all art. At the same time, it can be a sharp weapon, a sewing instrument, or even a presence locator, a 'pin'”, he says. And he states that he has an emotional relationship with the pin as a material because “all the women in my family embroidered. It is fragile, but at the same time piercing and can be aggressive,” he says.

Nanotechnology and art

The artist, born in Belo Horizonte in 1977, completed a master's and doctorate in Metallurgical Engineering in the area of ​​Biomaterials. He dedicated himself to the study of nanotechnology and developed a type of polyurethane to use pins in his works. He has a 20-year career in the visual arts. “For many years I worked with a technique called pointillism, but over time these points had to gain body, take shape, gain volume. From this, these sculptures were born”, he says, about the creative process of the current production.

There are also sculptures from the Ladies of Small Spaces series, which appear as figures with an almost human outline and suggestive femininity. They are works that measure around two meters in height each, with half of the body covered in thousands of pins and the other half carved in wood. Next, the 250g installation – a name that suggests the average weight of a human heart – fills the immense wall of the MAB with 80 pinned hearts, whose impact invites the viewer to distance themselves to place them in their field of vision. These sculptures symbolize the 80 happiest countries in the world, according to the UN list.

At the end of the exhibition is the audiovisual recording of the Pacto performance, with a heart-shaped sculpture pierced by a large gold pin in a transparent resin cube. The red color that can be seen comes from the hemoglobin present in the blood of the artist and her husband, Renato Buratto, showing the strength and power of this union.

The artist is selected by the Dan Believe program, from Dan Galeria, one of the most traditional in the capital of São Paulo, to give visibility to the artistic production of professionals with a solid trajectory in the visual arts and without representation from galleries.
