About the artist
Marlon has painting as his main production medium. In his research, the artist focuses on bringing to light, through personal experiences and daily iconographic research, social patterns that perpetuate structural racism. With a strong influence of urban aesthetics, he builds scenes that function as visual traps when playing with the contradiction of his characters and the strong chromatic appeal in relation to the socio-political content brought by the artist.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
GINGA features new works by emerging BIPOC artists from across Brazil. “The presentation interrogates issues of race, gender, sexuality, and social class in postcolonial Brazil in an exploration of identity”, said curator Igi Lola Ayedun. “Artists in this exhibition draw from the wide spectrum of racial roots in Brazil. From painting to sculpture, whether through figurative or abstract techniques, through the logic of representation or expression, GINGA explores contemporary Brazilian identity through decolonial frameworks, including right of subjectivity; queer political thought; Black meta-community documentary; and heritage perseveration and projection.” The exhibition takes its name, GINGA, from the fundamental movement of capoeira, the Brazilian martial art practice of West African descent, in which the body rocks back and forth in constant motion to thwart attack.
Works in GINGA blur the boundaries of traditional media to constitute an “intermedia—as opposed to cross- media—relationship,” said Ayedun. The exhibition by the São Paulo-based network confronts the parameters within which Latinx art has traditionally been understood, explained Ayedun: “HOA is challenging the colonialist narrative that Latinx art must either trail superior Eurocentric identities, or belong to an exoticized avant-garde of rebels without a genuine cause.”
