Exhibition Dragão Floresta Abundante




With the exhibition Dragão Floresta Abundante the artist Christus Nóbrega brings very particular impressions of China and proposes work with special participation of the public. The show was produced during the period when the artist participated in an arts residency program of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in partnership with the Central Academy of Fine Arts - CAFA in Beijing between October and December 2015. This is the first experience of the genre performed with the participation of a Brazilian artist in China.

Curated by the art historian Renata Azambuja – with working experience in artistic residences -, Dragão Floresta Abundante (Abundant Forest Dragon) proposes a network of reflections on different technologies, from the most archaic - such as the map and the kite - to the most modern ones such as cellular GPS.

The works of the show comprise eight series that travel between the languages ​​of photography, performance records and drawings made with GPS, laser cut, algorithms. The idea is that the public can approach the experience of the artist and the still unknown Chinese ancient culture by various means in which tradition and contemporaneity are combined with the use of technology.

Workshops

In January, the exhibition will promote complementary activities on weekends. Four workshops will be developed during every Saturday of the month: Workshop of Calligraphy, Folding and Drawing with GPS, all free of charge. Entries will be made by email dragaoflorestaabundante@gmail.com.
