T293 is pleased to announce the exhibition ‘Luciana Brito Galeria in-residence at T293’ as the result of the collaboration with the Brazilian gallery and that will open on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. From June 8 through July 29 Luciana Brito Galeria features an exclusive group exhibition in the space of T293, bringing recent works by Héctor Zamora, Pablo Lobato e Rafael Carneiro.
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. The works featured in 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 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 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). 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 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.
