Aparelhagem (The Rig)
When considering a communal area for a diversified audience within the Ipiranga district, one can hardly ignore the neighbourhood, given the historical relevance of the site. On the other hand, while visiting the Ipiranga monument, it is surprising to see the different ways in which skaterboarders, young people, senior citizens and passers-by use and appropriate the space. As a result, the question arises: what could be developed based on these relationships between bodies, spaces, objects, sounds, policies, histories and narratives. Aparelhagem (The Rig) is a proposition, a setting, a construction, an installation mobilized by these questions. It is informed by a juxtaposition of different infrastructural forms: plenary, monument, furniture, exhibition, playground, square, reading room or lounge. It also plays host to many talks, including audience conversations, performances and voices – with com Aretha Sadick, Daniella Mattos, Enrico Rocha, Kabila Aruanda, Laymert Garcia dos Santos, Solange Lima – that listen to one another throughout the structure.
