Luciana Brito Galeria in Residence at T293
Saturday 3pm–7pm or by appointment
Featuring an exclusive group exhibition bringing recent works by Héctor Zamora, Pablo Lobato and Rafael Carneiro, this exhibition is the result of a collaboration between T293 and the Brazilian gallery Luciana Brito Galeria.
Héctor Zamora presents his work, Sra. do Cabo – Ordem e Progresso, 2017, an installation consisting of the wreck of a traditional Portuguese fishing boat, as well as two exclusive photographs entitled Ordem e Progresso, 2017 (133 x 200 cm each). The works featured at the exhibition evoke maritime tradition rooted in Portuguese culture, referencing the sociopolitical meaning that boats gain in the current context of migration. They present themselves as an unfolding of the Ordem e Progresso, 2017 performance, held by the artist in March this year at the MAAT museum in Lisbon.
Pablo Lobato presents the series Rest, 2015 consisting of 14 photographs of Israeli soldiers in a resting position (32,14 x 45 cm each) and the video installation Castell, 2012 conceived during the traditional Catalan party where human towers are raised, hence the name of the work. Whilst in Rest Pablo Lobato conjures a new gaze through an innovative cut for the image, in Castell the artist once again explores the idea of cut as a poetic solution, creating an unusual framing that displaces and provokes the viewer.
Rafael Carneiro participates in the exhibition with two paintings Untitled, 2010 (150 x 200 cm each). In these paintings, the artist portrays neutral spaces, not only in terms of the faded colors, but also by the detached nature of the spaces. These are worn away images, captured by security cameras at NASA bases. Rafael Carneiro’s work is articulated precisely around this very contrast between the quality of the scene recorded by these security devices and the pictorial quality expected of a screen. The paintings were created by the artist during an artistic residence in Paris, France in 2010.
The second stage of this collaboration will take place in August in São Paulo at Luciana Brito Galeria, where T293 will hold an exclusive exhibition featuring works by their represented artists.
