Atlântica Moderna: Purus e Negros
Sicardi Gallery is proud to announce a solo exhibition of work by Ana Maria Tavares, on view December 4, 2014 through March 8, 2015 at the Museu Vale in Espírito Santo, Brazil.
For this exhibition, Ana Maria revisited works by icons of modernist architecture, such as the Austrian Adolf Loos (1870–1933), the French Le Corbusier (1887–1965), the Italian-Brazilian Lina Bo Bardi (1914–1992) and the Brazilians Oscar Niemeyer (1907–2012) and Burle Marx (1909–1994).
In conceiving this show, Ana Maria was inspired by the Atlantic Forest to uniquely re-create the same nature that influenced those icons. Conceived as a large installation with sculptures, video and sound, the exhibition sheds light on questions such as the tenuous relationship between nature, architecture and modernity, deconstructing the limits that separate them from each other and making them a part of a single mechanics – life.
