Brazil Incarnate

The duo Ludovic Thiriez and Rogerio Mesquita exhibits a series of paintings over photographs that plays and confronts issues of identity and culture that populates the collective imagination of an exotic tropical paradise.

The artistic production originated through contemplation, amidst the world of observation, a permanent oscillation between documentary and the desire for timeless sensations. From bright lighting experiences through the exuberant fauna and its inhabitants, a certain typicality or symbolism of the tropics begins to consolidate as a romantic image of Brazil that stills populates the collective imagination.
