Ein sehr großes weißes Tuch ist mit Öffnungen versehen, durch die man Kopf und Arme stecken kann. Passanten ,wie auch eine Gruppe von Tänzern unter der Leitung von Veronika Riz, sind eingeladen an einer gemeinsamen Aktion teilzunehmen, bei der das Tuch als Anlaß dient, nicht nur die Körperbewegungen der einzelnen Personen aufeinander abzustimmen, sondern die Teilnehmer auch in einer Art gemeinschaftlichem Gleichklang zu vereinen...

Lygia Pape and the renewal of Brazilian Art

Lygia Pape (Nova Friburgo, Rio de Janeiro, 1927 – Rio de Janeiro, 2004). Sculptress, engraver and filmmaker. Studied with Fayga Ostrower (1920 – 2001), at the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (MAM/RJ). Approached Concretism and in 1957, after joining the Grupo Frente [Front Group], was one of the signatories of the Manifesto Neoconcreto [Neoconcretist Manifesto]...

Pape worked beside Lygia Clark, Helio Oiticica and Ferreira Gullar, in what they called neoconcretism, an intellectual movement inspired in language and subjectivity over the graphic space. Her most famous performance, “Divisor” (1968), a textile work that must be carried collectively, is reactivated in this exhibition.
