discussão I, 2021
video projection on mannequins, bed
variable dimensions

In collaboration with Lucienne Guedes and Silvio Restiffe

auroras is an independent art space in a modernist house. Some of the characteristics of the house remain and were used as starting points for works that consider the relationship with the space’s architecture. This is the case of “discussion I”, installed in one of the bedrooms. The work creates a scene between two mannequins sitting on the bed. Animated by projections, the couple is trapped

in an endless dialogue that discusses nothing and orbits an argumentative void broken by sharp cuts. The improvised text was created together with actress Lucienne Guedes and actor Silvio Restiffe, who collaborate on this work. Beside the bed, above the lampshade, is a photograph of a mannequin from her back.
