The installation “Blind Gallery” was made made specifically for the space of MAM Rio. Consists of a single work that evokes a ghostly display their representations emptied. Page turned the huge mobile walls of the Museum in a monumental architecture whose surfaces are adorned with a continuum of large-scale paintings. The final effect is a disorienting environment, reminiscent of a gallery in absentia; missing images.

On Tuesday, day 12 December and Wednesday, day 13, from 14 to 17 hours, Page will hold a workshop on School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage. Yet on the day 13, to 19 hours, the artist will make a presentation of your work in The school library. All these activities are open to the public.
