The gallery has the pleasure to announce the participation of Janaina Mello Landini to the 13th Mercosur Biennial curated by Marcello Dantas which will take place from September 15th to November 20th, 2022, in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
This 13th edition theme “Trauma, Dream, Escape” recognizes the notion of trauma – being it personal or collective – as the most important trigger in the artistic process, and dreams as the best stratagems to escape from it.
The collective traumatic experience, such as the pandemic the world went trough in 2020 drove the artistic creation towards new territories. Its impact on our common imagination by means of activation of onirism, dreams and delirium opened doors to escape from a condition that was imposed to all of us.
Marcello Dantas is an award-winning multi-disciplinary curator, who has been working widely across Brazil and abroad. He works on the boundaries between art and technology, producing g exhibitions and museum and multifaceted projects that aim to produce immersive multi-sensory experiences.
