brazil presents ‘inside/outside’ at the venice art biennale 2013.

 

commissioned by luis terepins (fundação bienal de são paulo)–curated by luis pérez-oramas and deputy curator andré severo–the south american country’s pavilion within the giardini venue explores this idea of the ‘constellatory structure’, featuring the work of five artists including odires mlászho.

 

born josé odires micowski, mlászho takes many of his creative influences from the work of max ernst and lászló moholy-nagy, so much so that his alias is a culmination of their names. the book sculptures which he has created especially for this occasionconvey his attempt to re-invent the possibilities of collage, particularly its developments in our digital world. his work,in conjunction with fellow exhibitor hélio fervenza, present a constellation of pieces which represent a brief archeology of the möbius strip in art. the books sculptures which mlászho has conceived employ volumes arranged in such a way that they are rendered in twisting formations, worked into one another, referring to principles associated with a möbius strip. to emphasize the use of a its mathematical properties in art, his and fervenza’s pieces are being shown in relationship to bruno munari’s ‘concave/convex’ (1947), max bill’s ‘tripartite unity’ (1948-49) and lygia clark’s ‘soft work’ (1964).
