For the first time in Latin America, show presents the work of one of the main artists of Narrative Art, Mac Adams.
Curated by Luiz Gustavo Carvalho and Anne-Céline Borey, the selection presents the Brazilian public 17 diptychs of the iconic Mysteries series, in addition to the site specific installation "Cartography of a crime", created especially for the exhibition in São Paulo. In this installation, the artist reflects on memory and forgetfulness, through an obsessive passionate relationship. For this, Mac Adams builds a dialogue between his images and photographs from the archive of the Nicéphore Niépce Museum (France), one of the most important in Europe.
An artist chosen by France to integrate the Rodin Year at 2017 / 2018, Mac Adams has developed a work in two or three dimensions that explores the narrative potential of photography and installation in the composition of mysterious scenes. His work mixes references from the tales of Wales where he was born, the Arthur Conan Doyle novels, Alfred Hitchcock's cinema and cinema noir.
The exhibition also counts on the participation of authors of different nationalities, invited to write texts inspired by some of the works chosen by curators. The authors, chosen by the curators, are: Tal Nitzán (Israel), Ricardo Domeneck (Brazil), Dylan Thomas Hayden (United States), Pascal Marquilly (France), Marcus Fabiano , Victor Heringer (Brazil), Guilherme Gontijo Flores (Brazil) and Matilde Campilho (Portugal).
