Geometric blocks in black, white and blood red, overlaid on images of transgender bodies, comprise the series ‘transgeométricas’. The collective behind the works, AVAF (Assume Vivid Astro Focus), made up of the artists Eli Sudbrack and Christophe Hamaide Pierson, have been using trans people as symbols of change for years, and here that change represents São Paulo’s abrupt verticalisation, leaving neighbourhoods all but unrecognisable from one decade to the next, in an apparent planning vacuum. The geometric shapes that overlay the portraits pay homage to the city’s Constructivist past.

Another series of works in the show, ‘Mesas Calçada’, is a collaboration with the Turkish artist Yusuf Etiman that remixes SP’s classic paving-stone design, whose monochrome geometric shapes echo the shape of the state of São Paulo. The resulting patterns have been embedded on a series of tables that are stacked inside the gallery. ‘Transgeométricas’ is part of the exhibition ‘alisabel viril apagão fenomenal’.
