The passing of time and the creation of memories are important recurring themes in the work of Brazilian artist Laercio Redondo. Using old books, movies, diaries and historic events as starting poins, Redondo combines the past, the present and our relationship with both through pictures and installations. In Contos sem Reis, the artist creatively interprets the history of the Casa França-Brasil, a cultural centre and neoclassical landmark in downtown Rio, and the development of a Brazilian national identity.

The exhibition is comprised of pieces both big and small, including a mobile inspired by Brazilian-Portuguese 1940s bombshell, Carmen Miranda and a collection of images from a book about a French painter’s trip to Brazil in the 19th century. Complementing Redondo's vision is an installation by Spanish artist Daniel Steegmann Mangrané examining the  significance of indigenous peoples to the Brazilian identity. Together, their works invite viewers to think critically about not only Casa França-Brasil's contribution to downtown Rio but also the history of the city at a time of profound urban transformation.
