`Fragile is an installation that includes sculptures and their wooden moving crates. This installation was produced in Brazil (Sao Paulo), where I have been living and working since 2011, and it was moved to Basel for the group exhibition ‘Le Mal De Vivre’.
The work is about challenges, leaving behind memories and unidentified emotions. The beauty and distress that comes with constantly moving to other countries. A collection of unfinished fragments and unnecessary things from the past mingled with new impressions and experiences. Creating new stories, a repetitive process that leads to ´going away feels again like arriving´.
Strong personal impressions of Brazilian society like African-rooted rituals, religions and omnipresent street-dogs (see project 250 dogs) are reflected.
