Cinthia Marcelle + Tiago Mata Machado: O SÉCULO [THE CENTURY]


Sep 14, 2012 to Jan 6, 2013
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM


In a road, apparently quiet, something is seen being thrown from one end to the other. Soon, other objects are thrown, filling up the square: rocks, boots, helmets, uniforms, broom sticks, a steering wheel, a wheel, a toilet pipe, tools, a tub, tires, buckets, domestic appliances, a whole world that comes to the surface in a stream that converts, immediately, in something similar to a ruin. From the opposite side, a strike-back is planned; gas bombs are thrown at the other end of the square, spreading smoke throughout the area. A new landscape emerges in the fog. Soon, in another place, the confront starts again, moving the turbines, the whole whirlwind of human passions that life is about, the beauty and horror of a century.

Cinthia Marcelle lives and works in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and graduated in Fine Arts from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (1996-1999).

Marcelle uses video and photography to document the effects that her interventions have on the usual order of things. Particularly, Marcelle’s work is inspired by the chaos and the turmoil of possibilities which can be found in everyday life. She tries to gain a distance from this chaos and reorganise the disorder formally. Her actions create situations that challenge our notions of conventional behavior by introducing humorous coincidences and connections.
