It is with enthusiasm that we receive, on Superfície’s ground floor, the exhibition CADEIRAÇO, first solo by Andréa Hygino, a recently represented artist by the gallery, for the opening our 2023 exhibitions program. With critic text by Tiago Sant’ana, the showing presents a set of eight works that permeate different media, from photography to sculpture.
Andréa’s production discusses school training devices within the public education system. Visual artist and art educator, she uses elements from classrooms — such as lined sheets, used pencils, desks, didactic stamps and calligraphy exercises — to question the violent coercive practices already so institutionalized in national education, and which mainly affect the marginalized bodies of students within communities.
Based on graphic processes of repetition, differentiation and mirroring, the artist operates an aesthetic displacement and conducts disruptive and dysfunctional experiments presented in her first solo exhibition. The opening takes place simultaneously with Where the Earth bends, solo by Marina Camargo, on the upper floor of the gallery.
The show opens on November 11th remaining on display until February 3rd of 2024, and can be visited from Tuesday to Friday, from 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, from 11 am to 5 pm.
