I Do Everything to Do Nothing / Carlito Carvalhosa
Through Feb 2, 2018 / Nara Roesler

Carlito Carvalhosa

Galeria Nara Roesler | São Paulo presents Faço tudo para não fazer nada (I Do Everything to Do Nothing), second solo show of Carlito Carvalhosa in its space and curated by Maria do Carmo M. P. de Pontes. The exhibition presents works produced in different moments of the artist’s career, reflecting his metalinguistic will to revisit his work.

The main room contains an unprecedented installation made up of white fabrics, strings and fluorescent tubular lamps – recurrent elements in its vocabulary – as well as a series of wall works (2011 – 2017) consisting of aluminum plates with percussion, resin and paint white. The front rooms of the gallery are occupied by works belonging to a series of small porcelain sculptures created during a period when Carvalhosa was in Holland. They divide the space with a series of wax sculptures that refer on their surface to the texture of draped fabrics and from which emerge forms that resemble small fingers. Some of these pieces were produced years ago, others more recently. By exposing similar works made with a time gap Carvalhosa invites the viewer to immerse himself in a non-linear perspective where the beginning, the end and the middle inhabit.
