Interference on the municipal gallery of Chapecó, Brazil.

Inside the galery


Red fabric under courtains ~ XII ~ 2010


As the frame that encloses the surface of a painting, a window can be defined as a border, according to Helio Fervenza as a "device that produces the separation of spaces which would be assigned a different status." By linking these spaces, "the sign that is the edge, does not define anything in a rigorous way, he states:" this is an artifact of presentation, while being "included and excluded from the space provided, allowing us to conclude that a curtain would be both a ceiling and a "passing place" or an instrument of mediation between the interior space, occupied by the statement - PEACE - and outer space.
The work PEACE makes the boundaries of the gallery leaking to the world in perpetuity; overflowing move to other situations - not necessarily art - making art constantly visible to the public: closeing the Curtain comes a new exhibition that gives back to the art space, opening up the street, interfering subtly in urban space.
Vertical strips of red fabric to hatch window, warming the gray curtains, making the statement, which can only be decrypted with the distance: a sign that now emerges from the interior and yells to horizontal gaze through the message of peace - necessarily greater the passerby. According to history, Jesus Christ himself once said: "I leave you my peace, my peace I give unto you." There would be no humanity without this little three-letter word.
