Here are some photos of the installation of my exhibition that opened on 09/15/2022 at the USP Cultural Center in São Carlos, SP-Brasil where it will remain until 10/17/2022.
There are 17 photographs and photomontages of a project that, basically, started with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in a work in more than 60 municipalities in the interior of the state of São Paulo: small cities and their multiple rural areas (and, soooo many side roads!). I walked, I believe, about 3-4 thousand km, in a radius of about 200-250 km around São Carlos, SP, where I live.
The images were printed by the sublimation process on fabric, 100g/m2 microfiber, in large size, 1.0×1.5m. The installation turned out to be very beautiful, allowing, when walking through the 4 rows of images, a very interesting/impacting immersive experience (as some visitors reported).
They are vernacular images of architectural structures that go unnoticed by many of us and are even considered ‘unimportant/uninteresting’ by some people, but which for me tell many stories of these buildings, places, people and my own person who was born and lived in the interior of the state of São Paulo, although I had the opportunity to travel a lot around the country and the world.
I would be very happy with your visit.
