It’s time to rearrange space. Pieces fill the place, but the components are small and repetitive. The directions exclude and protect. Retreats are places to explore the evolution of a private event, and to observe the ambiguous movement of the spectator.

Elements of illusion are transformed and removed from the setting, in order to adjust to a new, unconventional landscape. Moveable sculptures. To where will it take the freedom of this malleable material? Delicate symbolism. Language becomes image, and in this kinetoscope, I try to decode its signs.

É hora de reordenar o espaço. As peças preenchem o lugar, mas os componentes são pequenos e se repetem. As direções excluem e protegem. Os recuos são lugares para explorar a evolução de um evento privado, e observar o movimento ambíguo do espectador.

Elementos de ilusão se transformam e são removidos do cenário, para adaptar-se a uma paisagem nova, não tradicional. Esculturas movéis. Aonde levará a liberdade deste material moldável? Simbolismo delicado. A linguagem torna-se imagem, e neste cinetoscópio, tento decifrar seus signos.

Virna Teixeira
