        After partying in the weekend I finally went out around my neighbourhood with the camera. It’s summer, the flowers are booming just as they would during Autumn, Winter or Printemps. I’m dressed as a gringo to justify the unusual behaviour and maybe because I am becoming one. It’s a huge camera,everyone looks at it. Two people tell me to be careful - ‘ouais, t’inquiètes, tô ligadão’. The weather cleared up so I decided to go for a quick dive. Zuka was there, I made a couple of portraits of his, laid down on the sand, reminded myself how this ritual has been part of my life for so long, then walked back home. As I arrived, my ninety five y.o grandma was crying alone in her room. Someone called, she said, saying that they were going to kill everybody. I called my relatives, made sure they were ok and calmed her down. It was a beautiful day.

        Désolé(e), disconsolate, desolate. External and internal landscapes. What’s the relation between this country’s territorial vastness and its people’s overpolitesse? It is a stereotype, but true nonetheless. I don’t recall of any other example of such explicit correlation between territorial and personal space. How does nature affect human nature? Studying proxemics might help. The apology act was introduced in Canada in 2009, as a measure to give lawyers a fair chance defending clients who were never guilty but apologized all the same. Make a series, call it IDH.

Lá, que sempre foi aqui
Já não o é
É là-bas
Cá, que era là-bas
Chui lá
Lá é aqui
Cá é lá
Là é cá
É aí que je suis

Mom told me today that grandma’s caretaker found her lying on the floor in the morning and thought she was dead. When asked what happened my grandma couldn’t tell, she didn’t realize she’d spent the night on the floor with no pillow, which she readily asked for as soon as my mom got there to check on her. After that, my mom decided to bring her back home. Now they’re living together. My father and brothers all left. No one could take the smell of decay. Her body is excrementing itself. It’s very sad and hard to be around. I remember when she used to take care of me. I loved playing cards and watching novelas with her. She’s been watching Tennis on TV for some years now. I doubt that she can even see the ball but she loves it, especially Roger Federer. She always asks if I keep on playing just to tell me that I look like him.

Axellemongrass and Pole explore the different ways memories and affects, the other-than-human and geographies of life-course transitions can be performed and documented. Through digital recombination of traditional portraiture and local vegetation, the images examine relationships affected by my cultural passage as well as place as meeting point and site of cultural and natural intersection.

Iras Fajro Live AV Perf with Yamila Rios @ El Matadero Madrid

El lunes 11 de Junio 2018, Yamila Rios y el artista visual Gabriel Fuks presentaron en AVAM Matadero el resultado de su primera colaboración. En esta conjunción de fuerzas se han unido para conceptualizar el universo visual del directo del álbum debut de Yamila, Iras Fajro, 11 temas que rugen orquestados por una voz paradójicamente frágil. En el escenario, Yamila (voz, violoncello y electrónica) y Lucía Rey (voz y teclados) desplegaron un entramado de sonidos electrónicos e instrumentos acústicos frente a los complejos piélagos que, como islas perdidas, se distorsionan empujados por la fuerza de la música.

Screen Site (Remembering Lois) is a screen-reliant installation that rethinks media’s relationship to space through the investigation o the malleability of the screen, both a material object and a carrier of the immaterial. The work uses the digital screen as site and bordering territory of transformation, a hybrid space or an assemblage (De Landa), where material and spatial relations are co-created and interdependent and where the notions of division and encounter, permanence and fluidity can be explored.

These are composed by the merging of satellite images of both the neighbourhoods I used to live in Rio and the one I currently live in Montreal. With the support the new Google Earth Studio, this exercise in geographical imagination that requires neither a camera nor leavin home, interrogates through its disembodied, machinic eye, the ways in which the digital machine can be considered as a convergent part of th construction of our social selves.

Feng Shui is a site-specific installation that occupies a borderline environment in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. It points out the excess in our society and the modifications in the port of Rio through the appropriation of the resources provided by the space itself together with internet media that comment on misappropriation, misoccupation and speculation.
