Escada

  •  José Spaniol  (Brazil) - 29ª Bienal de São Paulo
  • "For the Bienal, Spaniol develops an installation that materializes in accumulative actions. In the first of these, in which he molds some beaten earth, the artist tensions the empty space of the building, constructing Escada that almost reaches the ceiling. He then takes a series of white marble dishes, thinly coated in oil paint and distributes them about the space; lastly, adjustments and rectifications can bring new objects and words to the conjunct, already replete with material and qualities. Enigmatic and difficult to quantify, the installation reverberates with imagetic and literary echoes that make up the artist's repertoire, materializing an ineffable environment. "  (From: 29ª Bienal)
