Overview

Seduções or Seductions, examines the variety, subtlety and ambiguity of recent Brazilian art. Cildo Meireles, Ernesto Neto and Valeska Soares could scarcely be more different in their choice of materials and formal vocabulary, but nonetheless their work is full of common interests and sensitivities. In "How to Build Cathedrals," Meireles assembles a treasure trove of riches and symbols, including 600,000 coins, 2,000 bones and 800 communion wafers. Neto's "Globiobabel nudelioname landmoonaia," a biomorphic world made of stretchable stocking fabric, conveys intimacy and security. In contrast, Soares's rigorous, Minimalist "Vanishing Point," with its 15 steel tubs, quotes the domesticated nature of Baroque gardens. Conversations with the artists provide personal insights into each work, and explanatory essays put them into a larger context of informative cross-references.
