QUEERENTENE | Expire

LGBT Art + in quarantine

Museu da Diversidade Sexual

Expire - In the second part of the exhibition Queerentena impressions and provocations created on the world today, "out there", emerge from personal observations and / or reports received. What are these new forms of social relations? Isolation is a new place of privilege? Under what conditions can we isolate ourselves? How does our body reacts to what is locked out? It's not possible to think of oneself without thinking of others; as it is not feasible to breathe without inhaling and exhaling and vice versa.

Estado permanente em vazão (2020-03-14) by VanteesMuseu da Diversidade Sexual

Empty support

Vantees, artist from Curitiba, developed this project on the island of Pag in Croatia, which currently has its borders closed.

The work brings a parallax between the element (metal frame of a chair) inserted in the environment and photographed. The "empty" generates an infinite crossing, and the movement of the counterpoint in the sleep/permanence function questions the instability caused by quarantine as opposed to the stability of the object.

A relationship of fragility that confronts the structural strength of a precise geometry.
