Angela Detanico, Rafael Lain. Amplitude

February 20th – April 28th
Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisbon

Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain (Caxias do Sul, Brazil) began exhibiting in 2001. They currently live and work in Paris. Their work can be related to several art trends that gave life to Brazilian modernist avant-garde movements such as concrete art, the visual poetry of the Noigandres group or digital art.

However, since they are living at a different time, a time when many aspects of these movements are part of everyday life, making reference to them introduces a playful, if not ironical, dimension that derives from the ambiguity created by those works.

Here, language seems to have taken over, because the works are built on the voluntarily improper use of the coding and decoding work that characterizes the flow of information in contemporary society.

The game of transposing codes and perceptions is always a cunning exercise in discovery and creativity. It is in these deviations of the improper that we find the infinite task of language, composing and decomposing the world. Through this process, language is once again allowed access to full experimentation.
