DESCRIPTION

 

For this exhibition, Bevilacqua will show a series of floor sculptures, hanging mobiles and wall works constructed from rudimentary materials such as wood, wire, glass and beads. From a background in architecture, which he studied in his hometown of Rio de Janeiro, his deceptively simple constructions emit a disciplined and rigorous logic.

 

Jessica Mein will show two animated videos together with a series of drawings that attempt to capture the patina of time and layered grittiness of the urban landscape. Her videos are comprised of a series of drawings and photographs, in excess of 600 images each, collected predominately from her birthplace in São Paulo and condensed into a complex animated sequence.
