Cena#1: Bia Lessa (Brazil)

Archive Bia Lessa

The trajectory of the artist stands out among works carried out in conventional and non-conventional spaces. A set of works that dialogues,  join, split, exists and coexists. As in a workroom, a conversation is stablish about realised productions and future projects, inviting the visitor to participate to participate of this conversation. On the four screens the artist has invited: Flora Süssekind, Angela Leite Lopes and Bruno Siniscalchi, in addition to herself. The dialogue brings up questions about the production performance, texts, palys and architecture.  The drawings of scene performed by Bia Lessa occupy small screens in a panel-archive of images and annotations that connect reflections and impermanent records of artist and employees recorded the chalk. From the ceiling, drops of water fall from the ceiling, changing the dynamics of reasoning, as a rhythmic element imposing presence and reminds us that there is life out there.
