“Adagio "goes on display at MAS / Metro Tiradentes room with sculptures and site specific in Corten steel, addressing memory issues, childhood and time
A Museu de Arte Sacra de São Paulo – MAS / SP, institution of the Department of Culture and Economy of the State of São Paulo Creative, inaugurates “Slowly”, visual artist paulistano The complete Seabra, under the curatorship of Bianca Boeckel. Inspired by the musical progress slow slowly - it refers to both the time required for the material used (steel) to corrode and get the desired aesthetic, as the speed of production of parts -, the artist presents sculptures and site specific in Corten steel, which address issues of emotional memory, childhood and time.
Music is a very present in the life of art The complete Seabra from childhood, also it is his first academic, before the visual arts. Built around a family factory, the artist used steel that would be resold as scrap metal to create his first sculptures, resignifying material. In this sense, the new temporary exhibition Room MAS / Metro Tiradentes displays a derived production of this affective memory, something that would no longer use. “The industrial design of this exhibition room makes the work back to its origins, removes the artist from a childhood memory and inserts it into an environment where you feel comfortable to come back to this time and produce”, says curator Bianca Boeckel.
In "Slowly”, The complete Seabra exposes ancient works - some borrowed from private collections -, sculptures and site specific unpublished, produced especially for this individual, plus a tower in corten steel that will occupy one of the gardens MAS / SP. A site specific It will be done in underground room, with Corten steel frames. In the Gardens of BUT They will be exhibited some sculptures, making communication of the two gardens with room Tiradentes subway.
About the creative process, the artist regards the time of execution, which is relatively slow as the progress slowly. In his words: “I do not sketch, just take the material - usually a steel plate - and I molding, testing both limits of the body (force) as a matter (resistance)”. For curator, thinking and execution are together in this process: “The artist has an idea and follows a draft; he respects the raw material and their time. It is his will in favor of the time that the piece needs to be ready. Just as the work of a musician, thought and action take place together, through an inspiration that comes from within, medium without predefinia”.
The expography show is based on the artist's musicality and proposes to emphasize the movement of parts: They begin within niches and a closed window, and beyond these physical limits, using metal personality for the work together. In the words of Bianca Boeckel: “The lightness of the final result speaks to the steel stiffness, unissonante. The work progresses, interested, Solid expression becomes loud. It is music for the eyes: we see their presence, but not heard”.
