EXHIBITION “ARTE PARA NÃO SER VISTA” – 15 DECEMBER 2020
“Arte para não ser vista” is an exhibition of Ducha e Isabelle Arthuis, who both present works
that have resulted from their time with CAPACETE.
Isabelle Arthuis presents a new piece based on her long-term research on Parque do
Flamengo and her desire to highlight the concrete structure “Teatro para brincar” as a work
of art that in the near future will be revisited, restored and reactivated.
Ducha shows a model of a sustainable sailing boat, a first step of what may become a
vehicle for the transport of people and organic products over long distances. This new work
sits alongside earlier works and documentation of actions, trips and collaborations, many of
which reach back two decades, with stories by those who were there with Ducha at the time.
A new film, “Apocalypso” (2020) by Mariana Bley with Ducha, premieres online on the day of
the opening. “Apocalyspo” proposes a visionary idea of inverting the colonization process by
promoting a fair trade from Brazil to Europe.
The exhibition is the first instance of a historical review of CAPACETE that brings together
artists who have taken part in the residency over the last twenty-three years, in a changing
constellation that will combine Brazilian and foreign ex-residents.
The show is approached as a choreography: the idea is to set something in motion, in
collaboration with others – a way of working that CAPACETE has been practicing over the
years. The audience is invited to make their own reading of the works and the connections
that exist between the artists. The title of the exhibition comes from a recent comment by the
artist Jarbas Lopes about the work of Ducha.
For health safety reasons, the exhibition opens in the virtual realm. Visits to the space will be
soon be announced, including a conversation between Thiago Fernandes e Ducha.
