Group Show: Entities - Janaina Torres

São Paulo Brasil

GROUP EXHIBITION

ENTITIES

Plural Ways of Being

The continuity of diverse forms of life put on hold by contemporary tension and vertigo is the main theme of Entities, an exhibition that presents an overview of Janaina Torres Galeria’s curatorial proposal for 2024. In four exhibition sections, the group show features works that, based on their formal and research affinities, serve as a gateway to plurality, based on their very condition of existence.

MAR 03 – APR 04 2024

ENTITIES| Antonio Oloxedê, Caio Pacela, Cibelle Arcanjo, Daniel Jablonski, Kika Levy, Laiza Ferreira, Liene Bosquê, Marga Ledora e Matheus Ribs

Curator: Shannon Botelho

VIEWS

Based on the project built for the gallery in 2024, Entities presents four central axes: Faith and belief, Time, Archaeologies and Other ecologies. Each axis brings together works that, based on their formal and research affinities, serve as a gateway to themes such as erasure, memory, collectivity, religiosity, nature and landscape, which underpin the artistic investigations.

In order to communicate values that guarantee plural existences, we didn’t trace a linearity that discusses the meanings that each work harbors exclusively. On the contrary, we wanted to establish a moving connection between works and artists, in which each component acts as an agent of discourses and places, struggles and positions, beliefs and hopes.

— Shannon Botelho, curator

BIOS

Antonio Oloxedê
Artist and priest of Ilê Asipà – one of the four remaining spaces of the cult of Baba Egun, a manifestation that originated in West Africa and is still alive only in Brazil – Antonio Oloxedê uses elements of the Yoruba imagery vocabulary to reinterpret tools of ancient tradition in the cult of the orishas and ancestors of Black Africa, mixing ritual ancestry, tradition and contemporaneity. With coconut tree talismans, rattles and conch shells, materials shrouded in meaning and symbolism, the artist contributes to the maintenance and continuity of Afro-Brazilian cults, inserting subjective elements such as bright and open colors, without compromising the secrecy that touches the structure of religions of African origin, the core and foundation of sacred structures. Oloxedê was responsible for restoring the works and continues the legacy of his grandfather – founder of Ilê Asipà, artist and researcher – Mestre Didi.

 

Caio Pacela
Caio Pacela has a degree in Painting from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; he attended free courses at EAV Parque Lage between 2014 and 2016. Because of his personal history – always linked to a strong religious context and intensified since 2020 when he established his studio in one of the rooms of the evangelical church he has attended with his family for 24 years in São Gonçalo – spirituality becomes the field in which he finds possible ways to unfold his practice and within what he considers its derivations (faith, worship, offering, transcendence and transcendent). These are fundamental issues in the perception of the subjectivities and intersubjectivities of the world around him. It is at this moment and in this place that he turns his gaze to the invisible, with the images he chooses being mere subterfuge and support for the construction and understanding of what is perceived not only through the senses, but also through the spirit.

 

Cibelle Arcanjo
Cibelle Arcanjo, Brazilian, 31 years old, is a visual artist and researcher, a mixed-race indigenous woman (from an interracial family and Afro-Portuguese-Lebanese-Indigenous ancestry) raised in an urban context in the community of Morro do Preventório, a favela built on top of a mountain and facing the sea of Guanabara Bay in the city of Niterói in Rio de Janeiro. With a bachelor’s degree in painting from the School of Fine Arts of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (EBA/UFRJ), he dedicates his pictorial creation to the political and cultural crossings that affect socially marginalized bodies and their subjectivities, leaking pre-established territories, dissolving borders, evoking significant imaginaries and figures, doubly symbolic and real, also (re)presenting and affirming more colourful and generous worldviews in the interrelationship between bodies and environments.

 

Daniel Jablonski
His multifaceted production, combining theory and practice, examines how individual identities are shaped by social discourses and their numerous documents. Interrogating his own experience in the light of different hypotheses and theories, Jablonski aspires to produce artworks that can function as real “case studies”.

 

Kika Levy
Kika Levy expands the possibilities of printmaking in a continuous process of experimentation that abandons the cloister of perfection, color pattern and verisimilitude between the components of a series. Adopting a continuous approach in which she welcomes error, chance and deviation from the path, the artist builds a large body of overlapping images, print residues, cut-outs and leftovers in a work that is constantly mutating.

Laiza Ferreira
Graduated in Visual Arts at UFRN (Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte). The artist draws on fiction, non-linear temporalities, ancestral memories and the recreation of worlds through re-signified fragments of images. Using collages of photographs, either analogue or digitally, she appropriates images found in personal archives, digs and search sites to create and reconnect with her history and origins, in a process of decolonizing the image, the gaze and photographic language. The symbolic charge of portraits of different peoples and ethnicities, landscapes and astronomical elements are mixed with residues, traces, pixels and granulations from files of different resolutions. Her work has been exhibited in physical and digital media in Brazil, Colombia and Spain. In 2020, she won the Margem Fotografia Potiguar Award and was nominated for the Pipa 2021 Award.

Liene Bosquê
She holds a master’s degree in Visual Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a degree in Visual Arts from UNESP and a degree in Architecture and Urbanism from Mackenzie Presbyterian University. In her multidisciplinary practice, she proposes explorations and sensory experiences through relationships between subject and space, activating perceptions of memory and history. Her research unfolds in various languages such as sculpture, installations, site-responsive, and performance, investigating the transience of spaces and the transformation of rigid and static architectural elements into fragile surfaces. She has won important awards and residencies in her career, as well as having her work exhibited in important institutions such as MoMA PS1, Museum of Contemporary Photography- Chicago; Frost Art Museum- Miami; Carpe Diem in Lisbon- Portugal, among others.

Marga Ledora
With a degree in Linguistics from IEL/Unicamp, Ledora has a visual repertoire that incorporates form and concept, moving between drawing and painting, as well as metal engraving and photography throughout her career.
In recent series of drawings, which form the core of her current production, Ledora creates from houses (and their details), objects and botanical themes – such as stones, plants and flowers, in forms that sometimes expand and sometimes contain themselves, structuring themselves in a partial geometry of voids and vents amidst autumnal tones.
His work offers introspection and meditation amid the obsessive turbulence of disputed images and meanings that dominate today’s world.

Matheus Ribs
Carioca artist, born in 1994 in Rocinha. The son of a father from Maranhão and a mother from Ceará, he graduated in Social Sciences, where he joined the student movement and began producing as a cartoonist and illustrator. While carrying out his academic research into Indigenous School Education, he began to experiment with other media, developing paintings that crossed socio-political and environmental struggles in Brazil with the recovery of his ancestry. While establishing confluences between Afro-Brazilian and Amerindian spirituality, highlighting elements of rites, cults, costumes and graphics, Ribs also denounces the impacts of colonial violence and environmental racism in contemporary times. In 2022, he raised his banner “Curar a Terra e a Folha” at the Rio Art Museum, in 2023 he took part in the exhibitions Histórias Brasileiras at MASP and Um Defeito de Cor at the Rio Art Museum, and in 2024 he took part in Encruzilhadas da Arte Afro Brasileira at CCBB-SP.
