Laura Lima: Tailoring, individual at the Pinacoteca de SP, until 8/10

By installing a workspace with real people in the center of the Pinacoteca, Laura Lima removes the emphasis given to artistic objects in the museum space to focus on events. According to curator Fernanda Pitta, “Lima refuses to call her works performances. For the artist, it is not a matter of underlining the subjects or the subjectivity of their actions, but understanding the participants (which she calls living beings) as matter of the work of art, occupying the space in the same way as objects, furniture and architecture itself”.

John Afomfrah: Tropikos, MASP video room, until 12/8

Filmed in Plymouth, southwest England, a central location for the trade and trafficking of enslaved Africans during the British colonial period, Tropikos is “a tetralogy about water and dreams”, as presented at the beginning of the video. It is a story told in four acts, in which the boundaries between delusion and reality are blurred. Akomfrah achieves this effect through formal and aesthetic procedures that give the video a disturbing rhythm.

Helena Trindade, 'Poema a Derrida', s/d
