The exhibition “Num Instante” by artist Fernanda Gontijo opens next Thursday (23/05), at GAL Galeria. Curated by Marina Romano (curatorial text below), the exhibition presents a selection of recent works in painting, drawing and collage, as well as a work site-specific.

“The starting point was an experience of great wind that I experienced in Belo Horizonte, while walking through the streets of the center. I was surprised by a strong current of wind that, in an instant, raised a lot of dust and other fragments invisible to the accustomed eyes of those who pass by there on a daily basis. Suddenly everything was suspended in the air, spinning, I could barely keep my eyes open. It didn't last long, but after that moment nothing was the same as before. A twist, this is what I intend to show in the gallery through fragments collected during walks in the hypercenter of BH, in composition with works made in the studio and fragments from the studio itself” says Fernanda.

“In an Instant” aims to reflect the strength and delicacy of that moment, making previously imperceptible elements visible and how the fleetingness of an instant can change our entire perception of the world.
