"At least from 2003, When performed the installation ' Walls ', at the Centro Cultural Sérgio Porto, the artist points critically domination and the smooth. Tannuri handles the literal and newspaper, symbolically, its pages are like countries territory, limits of their physical boundaries, cultural, Economic and social.
