Braços verdes e olhos cheios de asas

Through the process of construction and deconstruction of images representing the region of the Amazon, this work is an attempt to explore not a territory, but its visual representations.

I revisited images (vernacular and press images that contribute to the construction of the imaginary of the place, along with photographs I took while experiencing the Amazon territory), and re-inserted them in a flux of montages, collages, and plastic interventions. The image of the Amazon then appears as a visual construction. My goal here wasn’t to represent the Amazon itself, neither to invite the viewer to get himself immersed into the greenery of the Amazon, but on the contrary to remind him the surfaces of its representations, and its images as construct, often fantasized.
