Having left her native Rio for Switzerland some years ago, carioca artist Maria-Carmen Perlingeiro's latest collection at MAM marks 30 years since she last exhibited here with 'The Beast With Seven Heads' back in 1982.

'Luz da Pedra' gathers some of her rather more recent work using materials including alabaster and gold leaf to create sculptures that play with natural light and conjure an altogether more tactile visual experience. With 2009's 'A bela e a fera' ('The Beauty and The Beast') she deploys goat skin to alarming effect, while the large blocks of selenite used for the 'Hot Ice' series also contribute to a truly varied palette of materials on display, and, as a result, for an unusual, enjoyably unpredictable little exhibition on the top floor of the museum.
