Caio Reisewitz at Luciana Brito Galeria
Caio Reisewitz’s newest exhibition “World in Between” responds to a second by which many Western societies battle with political polarization and calls for for really world collaboration to deal with problems with transnational consequence—most urgently, the environmental disaster. The artist has constructed his apply utilizing pictures to probe the connection of nature, structure, and human exercise. Because the early 2000s, Reisewitz has centered a lot of his analysis on Modernist structure in Brazil, examples of which regularly seem in his photos. For this exhibition, the artist crammed the widespread areas of a former residential constructing by Rino Levi, now house to Luciana Brito Galeria, with plants. The ground-to-ceiling sliding glass doorways onto the Burle Marx–landscaped patios had been left open, establishing a seamless indoor-outdoor setting. On the partitions, the pictures Anapú and Cutuá, each 2018, which had been taken in a Brazilian forest earlier than the realm was flooded to create the Belo Monte Hydroelectric plant, echo traces of a panorama that was neither separated nor built-in, however anthropogenically engulfed.
Within the annex, two landscapes created from superimposed pictures, Papudahú and Taguatinga, each 2023, go along with a pair of close-ups of water: Janahy, 2023, in tones of dusty rose, and Jaguaratema, 2023, in saturated greens that might simply learn as mineral or arboreal. Arapehy, 2023, frames a bunch of intertwined tree branches and roots on the sting of a stream in order that they resemble a easy constructing skeleton. At one finish of the room, mundo do meio (world in between) 2023, a big site-specific adhesive photographic collage created from a number of organically formed cutouts, opposes a window looking onto a tiny winter backyard.
Reisewitz’s metaphorical “world in between” comes into focus by way of the photographer’s play with layers and contrasts: indoor and out of doors, previous and current, summary and figurative, actual and representational, pure and man-made, related and remoted. The ensuing exhibition speaks to the ability and great thing about nuance and ambiguity. In a local weather of intensified extremes, the artist makes the case for exploring center grounds.
