Showing artworks of Helio Oiticica and Lygia Clark, two pillar Brazilian artists expanding the concept of a Neo Concrete Art during 1960s- 1970s. I was intrigued by a Portuguese word Cosmococas that Oiticica used for a series of experimental installations that means 'almost cinema' including a multi sensorial experience with projections and staged materials. This work CC9: On Friendships, Prisons And Longing, has been chosen in a context of an exhibition based on artists that have worked on political concepts of anti- dictatorship
regimes. Oiticica dedicated this work to one of his best artist friends Carlos Vergara, a political active photographer and painter.
Another political Brazilian artist Nelson Leirner (below photo), with a more contemporary work called Shoot If You Can, 2001. Leirner is born in 1932 and his conviction is still so strong!
