Carioca artist Franklin Cassaro unveils his latest collection of unusual aluminium foil creations at Laura Alvim in Ipanema. Famous for his half-beast, half-robot sculptures, all are created entirely by hand, but the exhibition includes a previously unseen set called 'Infláveis' ('Inflatables') that take up the entirety of a 24 metre-square room. One of which, Laika Meu Amor is a homage to the dog of the same name, the first living creature sent into space by the Russians on the shuttle Sputnik 1 in 1957.
