Marilia Furman @ PSM
Opening: Friday, April 29, 2022
'Departing from the sensibility of recent Brazilian conjuncture, Monstrous tackles the current global process of social disaggregation and material destruction. Through operations of seeing and seeing again, hearing and hearing again, dislocation, slowness and speed, Marilia Furman’s Monstrous takes us to the womb of the beast. At the moment of danger, of the accelerated global civil war, rise of the far right, militarization, unprecedent accumulation, nuclear threat, ecological and economic collapse, Marilia offers us a space to slow down the spin and open a rift. At the verge of the pile, her work recalls the entanglement of the eye with the cables, with the heart, with the hands, with the ears, with the power extensions, with the images, with the womb. It reconnects loose wires, ready to short circuit or spark at any time.'
