To enter the impossible: terrible beauty in three times
Mediation: Gabri Gregório Floriano
Starting from the question “if I break the silence, what identities become possible?”, shared by the artist Aline Motta about her work Water is a time machine, and the contributions of the authors Christina Sharpe and Saidiya Hartman around the idea of terrible beauty, we will construct meanings and fabrications for various works at the 35th Bienal, such as those by Archivo de la Memoria Trans and Denise Ferreira da Silva.
November 18 (Saturday), 15h
Ancestral technologies and contemporary resistance through abayomi dolls
Mediation: Ânella Barbosa e Caluz
We propose a moment to exchange affection and beautiful stories about ourselves and our own, who came before so that we could be here today in our freedom of body. Using the technique of making abayomi dolls by hand, we will share stories and a choreography between what continues in the dimension of orality and what must be questioned about our histories. We ask you to bring life scraps that carry with them an affective memory, told through fabrics/clothing that are out of use, so that we can imagine other forms and narratives. And may new amulets of luck and protection emerge from this place.
