Carla Zaccagnini, El presente, mañana+
The first commission El presente, mañana, as part of The Missing Circle will explore the relations between modern Brazil and its colonial past. Carla Zaccagnini will investigate the Brazilian Gold Rush of the 17th century and its relation to the figures of the slave, the martyr and the traitor in the formation of history.
Carla Zaccagnini is a visual artist and writer, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and based between São Paulo, Brazil and Malmö, Sweden. Zaccagnini uses a variety of media including performance, video, drawing, installation, and text to investigate problems of displacement. Her practice responds to the development of modern Brazil, exploring the political and economic environment in which she works.
