Origin, originality, feathers, colonial history, and who´s the Master? A Brazilian conversation over necklaces, jewelry-making, rainforests, artistic quality and the colonial legacy.
On the Alto Anapu river, southwest of the Marajó island, in the Brazilian Amazon forest, Caxiuanã area, between the states of Pará and Amazonas, lives the Caiçara community, also known as Ribeirinhos. As part of the Shared Artistic Experimentation Expedition with the Peoples of the Forest, led by the NORTEAR project, artist and Brazilian AJF ambassador, Miriam Mirna Korolkovas, develops a practice where conviviality and jewelry-making come together.
In a colonial house on the island of Florianópolis, southern Brazil, the artist Roberta Burchardt develops a practice of reinstating new relationships through experiences of immersion, exploring the colonial house and its contemporary performance and legacy. An artist-in-residence program enables contact and permeability zones of mutual affection artist/artisan-Sobrado-practice-surroundings, and foments a community of contemporary dialogues, engendering bridges between the times of the Sobrado and the old colonial parish, in the world.
