Prizes & Acquisitions
MASC, Art Museum of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis
Acrylic cubes filled with contaminated ore mud (6x6x6cm)
The project is about the environmental crime that affected the Rio Doce in 2016 when the Bento Rodrigues mine waste dump owned by Vale S.A Mining Company collapsed.
As a consequence, nineteen people lost their lives, the village was destroyed and a huge river (Rio Doce ) was polluted, as was the whole coastline of the Espirito Santo state with a devastating effect on the life of traditional communities.
The project is composed of nineteen cubes filled with toxic mud taken from the river. Each cube has a plate with a number. The number can seem abstract, but it shows the age of each of the victims.Toxic Rationality is a memorial for the ones who lost their lives.
