EXHIBITION

EXPONDO [2010]

Video 06″00‘ 

“Social blindness” blocks out the view of the maintenance workers’ daily routine around our cities. Their presence is hardly acknowledged while  their personal identities are lost.
EXPONDO was recorded at 29ª Biennale de São Paulo, Brazil, a space dedicated to the appreciation of the visual. The biennale is an international exhibition space where a wide audience transits to appreciate contemporary art works. The cleaning and security staff, that interacts daily to maintain  those spaces, is practically invisible.
In EXPONDO, Alicia Felberbaum attempts to recover the worker’s visibility highlighting their routine movements and presenting them as art performance acts.

Traffic Jam #1 São Paulo [2010]

TRAFFIC JAM unites international artists during 1 month in a city and from a process of collaborative creation, each artist develops a video interacting and dialoguing with the local urban landscape. TRAFFIC JAM#1 is the first edition of the project, that intends to migrate internationally. During November 2010, 10 artists from 7 different countries undertake an art residency at the Casa das Caldeiras, in São Paulo, and developed the video works exhibited at the Espaço Matilha Cultural between 01 and 12 of December.
