Marble experiments

Photography by Monica Espinel

These photographs and sculptures are part of the exhibition Corpo-Teto Corpo-Chão (Body-ceiling Body-floor) curated by João Paulo Siqueira Lopes and Maria Vittoria Oliveira at Paralelo Gallery in São Paulo. The sculptures deal with forms obtained through spaces and interventions of my own body in marble or simulacra of my organs. Going beyond matter, the photos are a record of my contact with work revealing to the viewer the intimate interaction between creator and creation.
The performance, in turn, brings the remaining third element of my research: the viewer – for that relationship that subverts the triangle artist / artwork / viewer. So, first we have an artist developing his work, in second an artist understanding his labor and third an artist opening his work to be exploited and interacted by the public.
