DIASPORAS AND ATLANTIC COMMUNIONS - YORUBÁIANO AND JUNTÓ: AYRSON HERÁCLITO

“Moving with great fluidity between spirituality, the production of visuality, academic reflection and political action, Heráclito is explicit when he says that he wants to ‘act, in a symbolic way, on the devastating consequences of racism and social inequality that affect the black populations'." In this way, the curator and researcher Solange Farkas (Videobrasil and ex-MAM Bahía) summarizes the approach to the production of Ayrson Heráclito, a Bahian artist who won a retrospective at the MAR (Museu de Arte do Rio) and who had an important recent solo show at the Simões de Assis Gallery, in São Paulo.

AN ANGEL, COLUMBUS, WRESTLERS AND A PAIR OF WINGS: THE COUNTER ALLEGORY AS A RESIGNIFICATION OF HISTORY

The echoes of the bells from the Church of San Ignacio of Loyola, in Buenos Aires, resound on the stones of the old Manzana de las Luces historical complex, one of the last buildings from the colonial era that survive in the city’s historic center. The place, which through the centuries has been a convent, a Museum of Natural Sciences and even a Faculty, transpires hispanic barroqueness. It is now a museum without a permanent exhibition; it is, in its way, a monument of its own. In the courtyard, the spectator looks upwards and there stand the balconies of the old cloisters, higher up the glass and steel walls of the skyscrapers of the financial district and, poised on the museum’s ceiling, observing this ancient patio, an unwinged angel that looks out of place. And it is. Or maybe not.

LYDIA AZOUT EXHIBITS “OLD EARTH-NEW EARTH” IN DOT FIFTYONE GALLERY MIAMI

The Colombian artist presents a selection of sculptures that flesh out her vision in accordance with what is currently happening: What happens when a space of clarity becomes a vitiated, expressionless space? Absurdity is negative. Is negativity always the end? Or is it rather a path to make way to the new? This is a personal thought process that has become matter; rather than purely conceptual, “Tierra Vieja / Tierra Nueva” is a risk, a medication, a vulnerability opened to the rebirth of pleasure and freedom.
