THE LANDSCAPE CROSSING AN OCEAN

March 30, 2019 - April 13, 2019

Opening: March 30, 17:00-22:00

Mayra Sergio

In her work, Mayra Sergio investigates identity, memory and immigration through a sensorial scope. For this project, she explores the idea of identity loss in the process of adaptation to a new culture, reflecting on her own experience as she moved 5 years ago from Brazil to the Netherlands.During her most recent trip to her home country, Sérgio collected fragments of various types of landscapes, gathering elements that embody the different and complex textures of Rio de Janeiro. Taken out of context, this (almost) absurd collection of objects and materials, reflect and picture her personal experience with the city she is original from.By relocating, fragmenting and recomposing these components she will reshape and reconstruct the landscape into new forms creating a meditative metaphor for cultural integration and social adaptation.

With the kind support of Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst (AFK)
