Exhibition “Who sleeps dreams? Who works conquest?” Artist Marcelo Oliveira

The Ruins Park opens on 07 April the 5th edition of Passage Project curated by Gabriela Dottori this time brings the exhibition "Who sleeps dreams? Who works conquest?"Marcelo Oliveira. The artist's work is given intrinsically to urban issues and emotions that they intend. The exhibition consists of objects, photographs and prints that emerged from his chance encounter with a group of guys who sell candy and peanuts in a traffic sign next to their workplace at UERJ. A striking feature in the production of Marcelo Oliveira is the fact that the word is a key building block for your graphical / pictorial construction. It was precisely through this intimate relationship with the textual he saw instigated by the phrases "Who sleeps dreams." "Who works achievement." Printed and stapled, by sellers, in plastic bags used to package their products. Marcelo seeks to return his estrangement through interrogations of adding to the end of these sentences. Its intention is to add the words together to signals to its visual spelling. And, with it, extract a doubt spark such harsh statements, reverberando (who knows?) other courses.
