audio-visual installation held at IBEU Gallery in Rio de Janeiro in 2015

The audiovisual installation 3AMARGEM (in a literature reference that user the word border in two different senses) was specially produced for IBEU Gallery. Situated in the most known and popular sea neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, the glasses of the gallery suggested an action involving crowded and noisy, Nossa Senhora de Copacabana Street, major neighborhood street. In 3AMARGEM the visitor is invited to sit on one of the neighborhood borrowed people chairs, listening to their stories through an illegal open-radio, different fragments of life stories which were recorder during one month research, edited, and put alive in a free radio station that transmitted to the whole neighborhood. Sit on the chairs, visitors would necessarily be facing directly the windows of those same (or other) people, who took part as collaborators, characters and actors in this collaborative show. In 3AMARGEM , private histories are put alive, but keep anonymous, if not by the chair, the windows and some people at the other side of the street, from the buildings windows, or the bakery or cigar shop downstairs, facing gallery visitors just as also characters, actors.
