On exhibitionover each other: History as a collective body" clay is used to reflect humanity and also an act of resistance.. The show, that inaugurates Monday, day 20, has about 20 unpublished works by the artist Thelma Innecco organized in three environments, that reflect the human being in episodes of collective memory, making aesthetic comments about human relationships, through movements across historical time. They are multi-body ceramic sculptures, which install questioning maneuvers on human relationships based on dissimilarities. “Warm affections - collective and individual - share space with serialized bodies, exempted from particularities. Such association brings us closer to each other, reminds us of intimate memories, rescuing in us the sense of an ongoing humanity", reveals the art criticism Ana Emilia Lobo, PhD in Contemporary Art and Culture from UERJ, who signs the curatorship of the exhibition.

Thelma Innecco says that the first work in the series one over the other was “Piledinhos” and that its meaning represents the exhibition as a whole.. “The piece Empilhadinhos shows multiple bodies, horizontal, stacked on top of each other and this series reflects the inequalities, human frailties and helplessness, exposing our own faults, in a theme open to different interpretations, since correlated in any city in the world. An act of resistance and preservation of memory represented by the delicacy of the sculptures that capture our affections”, explains the artist.

over each other: History as a collective body" also features a short film made in collaboration between Thelma Innecco and English filmmaker Caren Moy. In this work, sculptures are brought into dialogue with historical documents, archive images and reports in order to promote an excavation of memories of resistance. The stories of the Valongo Wharf and the Pedra do Sal and Sacopã quilombos are claimed, among other. "In another key, contemporary global movements are located in the work., como o Black Lives Matter, in which the destitution of civilizing statues gave way to vivid marches of memory and humanity. On tours of the city of Rio de Janeiro, the logic of the sculptures becomes inseparable from the logic of the monument. Celebrated as civilizational frameworks, the monumentalized barbaric acts are remembered only as a counterpoint to the use of common spaces” explains Ana Emília Lobo. “A exposure presupposes a dichotomy. It triggers a reflection on the serialization of bodies and subjectivities, but it also shows what inhabits us of others”, complements curator.

in a third space, the audience is invited to participate. Conducted by monitors, visitors will be able to create their own human sculptures to integrate the exhibition.

over each other: History as a collective body" stay set in CASA FRANCE BRAZIL until 23 January from 2022. The exhibition has already been in Belo Horizonte at the Funarte MG space in October this year.

"About each other: History as a collective body" was selected by the Funarte Visual Arts Award 2020/2021 – The Dialogue between the Historical Heritage of the city of Rio De Janeiro and the Brazilian present in the Visual Arts, in Architecture and Urban Spaces.
