About the artist
Rubiane Maia's work is a hybrid between performance, video, installation and text. Occasionally, she flirts with drawing and collage. Being attracted by synergy states, her practice encompasses multiple relations between the visible and the invisible. Therefore, she is continually seeking to re-elaborate its notion of existential territory (that is, corporal, spatial, temporal, cognitive, social, political, etc.), with the purpose of expanding-activating its possibilities of perception beyond the usual. Currently, she researches the concept of memory and its consequences and tensions with language; and also, incorporation and trance phenomena. Often, she makes use of personal narratives as a device for action and resilience.
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.”
