Estado do Sítio, 2012

Galeria Choque Cultural


The juxtaposition of 2 truncheons draw the profile of a christian cross. Placed at a higher level, such as religious icons use to be exhibited, the ready-made evoke, in a disturbing way, the aspiration for devotion. Mingling together the symbols of 2 of the greater power institutions – the State and the Church – the detour is a raw provocation and reflection on the ideals and principles behind these symbols that ultimately frame the morality of human beings and around which communities are tied together.
