Mendes Wood DM is pleased to announce the participation of artists Solange Pessoa, Rosana Paulino and Luiz Roque at The 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 2022 and Mariana Castillo Deball in the collective exhibition Until the Songs Spring at the Mexican Pavilion in Venice.

Under the curatorial helm of Cecilia Alemani the exhibition entitled The Milk of Dreams is an ode to the power of creativity and transformation. Examining the capability of humans to change, survive and overcome, Alemani turns to artists for their conceptual understanding of the challenges faced in post-human conditions.

Solange Pessoa
practice stands out as a singular, pulsating vitality, which manifests itself in peculiar contours that create figures in which we recognize the primordial movement of genesis. Pessoa's expansive practice draws inspiration from various sources: archaeology, prehistoric cave paintings, traditional craft,Brazilian Baroque, and poetry. Her stylization of life assumes a radical depth, offering a particular language for reading and imagining the world. Thus, we see species that carry traits from the mineral, vegetable, and animal kingdoms and convey universality through their most regional aspects.
