Review project [visits by appointment only: tel. 3088-2471]

In dialogue with the exhibition by Marcellvs L. in the main space of the gallery, entitled Slow Ontology, the gallery’s second address opens on Saturday, June 9, the group show “O Oco, o Vago”, which includes works by represented artists and others, that are part of the collection, around the thematic explored in the solo of Marcellvs. Assuming that the traditional ontology, like metaphysics, is a lineage of philosophical thought that has lost relevance in the complexity of today’s world, the selection of works seeks to twist and distend Manichean notions such as full, empty, being, nothing, weight, lightness, exploring the ontological weaknesses that exist between these apparent opposites.
Works by the following artists are part of the exhibition: Albert Hien, Alexandre da Cunha, Anna Maria Maiolino, Antonio Dias, Brian Griffiths, Caetano de Almeida, Cildo Meireles, Danh Vo, Edgard de Souza, Francis Alÿs, Franklin Cassaro, Ivens Machado, Jarbas Lopes, Jorge Macchi, Karim Rashid, Laura Lima, Marepe, Mateo López, Nelson Leirner, Olafur Eliasson, Pae White, Sérgio Romagnolo, Tunga, Valdirlei Dias Nunes, Wesley Duke Lee, Wim Delvoye.
