Art, sport and archaeology meet for London 2012
27 July 2012
The video produced realistically but then contextualised, is part of Bruno Vianna’s installation with objects and photographs in which the public will see the results of a ‘future excavation’ during the London Olympics 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016.
The installation mixes fiction and reality to question values connected to authenticity, uniqueness and cultural hierarchies. Using irony, it will invite people to look differently at their relationships with the pasts of Rio and London.
Renata was invited to take part in the project given her specialisation in Brazilian material heritage and provided a link between the two Olympic cities.
The ‘Occupation’ comes to a conclusion with a three day indoor festival in the V22 Summer Club at the Biscuit Factory where Vianna’s installation will be displayed along with the work created by the other 29 artists.
