Perceptible 4
_ Metal, Fabric, Light Bulbs
20 x 20 x 20'
Rio de Janeiro, June 2003







This installation pays homage to Hélio Oiticica’s series “Relevos Espacias”, by crossing its forms comprised of folding planes painted in solid colors with projected light from both the gallery, and from the cube structure that surrounds the lifted relief and from which it hangs. The cube is the same used in “Perceptible 1” but at this time two of its walls are open, and in its floor there are 16 red lamps pouring light from bellow. The lamps seem to lift the volume above with the mere force of their light.

The whole structure is placed in a larger gallery and allows the spectators to walk around it, revealing another aspect of a structure that cannot be easily understood from either one side; and that struggles against the grounded static cube trying to give it a movement and direction. This work was installed for the exhibition “Projéteis de Arte Contemporânea” at Funarte (National Foundation for the Arts) in Rio de Janeiro, in June of 2003.
