The show investigates a specific dimension of the Brazilian creative scene, through the selected works of twenty-seven artists using art as an exchange territory.

Marcellvs L. is a Brazilian video artist who has recently moved to Berlin. His ‘Rhizome’ series comprise mostly single-sequence shots in which the video camera is held still, at times drifting in and out of the subject: a seemingly ordinary moment, a detail or fragment, of city life. Recently he has been developing more ambitious video installations, which are full of delicate takes and revelations on time, progression and life itself.
