‘Pódio para Ninguém’ (‘Podium for Nobody’) by Lais Myrrha

This event has finished

Hailing from the mining-heavy state of Minas Gerais, the Brazilian artist Lais Myrrha uses a variety of media – from video to sculpture and even photography and cartography – to do some digging of her own, exploring the ephemeral nature of the world around us, and questioning the prudence and attainability of ideas such as permanence, independence and equality.

The exhibition shares a name with Myrrha’s latest series of works, ‘Zona da Instabilidade’ (instability zone), a trio of pieces featuring concrete dust as a symbol for impermanence and transformation, and portraying these ideas as mere promises that only exist in the abstract.

The temporary and unstable nature of solidity, for instance, is prominent in the concrete sculpture,‘Pódio para Ninguém (‘Podium for Nobody’, above). Other notable works include Dicionário do Impossível – a marble reproduction of several of these ‘impossible’, idealised words accompanied by their Portuguese dictionary entries – and O Tempo Corre Para o Norte, an hourglass whose sand lies static in the upper half, defying all notion of time.
