TRANSE – Viewing Room Lotus Lobo
Galeria Superfície integrates the new digital platform Transe with the artist Lotus Lobo. Housed on the Fortes D’Aloia & Gabriel website, Transe provides greater interconnection between alternative spaces, independent institutions, commercial and public galleries, generating greater visibility for the circuit as a whole. Updates will be constant, creating dynamic content that transforms and expands with new guests, each round. “Transe is an open field of exchange and exposure, an initiative that proposes union in common experience while reaffirming our belief in the multiplicity of models and languages. The first nine participants reflect this intention.” Access Galeria Superfície’s Viewing Room at: www.galeriasuperficie.com/lotuslobo-en

Between April and June 2020, Marcelo Brodsky exchanged visual correspondences with the Polish photographer Michal Iwanowski. This dialogue between two creators destroys the center of the author’s self and presents something different. Each decision is determined not only by trial and error, but by the artist’s work to make a speech consistent with previous works, thus building a personal visual identity.
