Ocupação Silvia Cintra + Box 4

DE 17/10/2017 - 11/11/2017 A



The Silvia Cintra + Box 4 gallery, from Rio de Janeiro, brings to Vermelho a selection of works from some of the artists it represents: Nelson Leirner, Maria Klabin, Laércio Redondo, Renata Har and Omar Salomão.

Nelson Leirner, who had his own solo exhibition at Vermelho in 2015, shows a series of works based on maps done between 2002 and 2016, and brings two 1975 films to the Sala Antonio projection room.

Maria Klabin is showing two large oil paintings and one drawing. The works are part of the artist’s emotional memoirs; they were developed from her experiences in Ilha Grande, off the Rio de Janeiro coast.

Laércio Redondo's work is frequently driven by the interpretation of specific events related to the city, its architecture and historical representations. From that assumption, Laércio is proposing an intervention on Vermelho’s façade bringing a quote which is said to be from Paulo Mendes da Rocha, the architect responsible for the gallery's project: A arquitetura não foi feita para enfeitar o desastre [Architecture was not created to embellish the disaster]. Other than the façade intervention, Laércio is also displaying a set of prints from the Desconstruindo Niemeyer series.

Renata Har shows works from her most recent solo exhibition at the gallery in Rio, exploring the tension between garbage and the sacred. Alabastro was organized as a large installation comprising varied media and mixing materials such as spray paint, tar, sequin, glitter, glass and neon.

Omar Salomão is an artist and poet. By associating text and image, he seeks to create a third element instead of underlining aspects of either. They come together and create new meanings, leading to new layers of understanding. Characteristically, his works dwell on all things temporary and transitory.
