Brasilia. The exhibition of the German photographic artist Movimento em Repouso can be seen in Brazil's highest court until November 11th. The exhibition consists of a series of 19 photos of monuments from Brasilia, created between 2004 and 2010 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the birth of the capital. The architectural lines of Brasilia, deconstructed and rejoined by the view of the German conceptual photographer Thomas Kellner, show buildings and monuments such as the Plenum of the Chamber of Deputies, the Esplanade of Ministries, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Brasilia, and the main building of the Federal Supreme Court.
The exhibition stems from a partnership between the Court of Justice and the Secretariat for Culture and Creative Industries of the Federal Government and is curated by the Director of the Museum of the Republic, Charles Cosac. The works are from the Galeria Karla Osorio and are open to the public on working days until November 11, 2019.
Charles Cosac explains that Kellner's work starts from the aesthetic figure and sets it in motion through repetition, which is limited by the extent of the film. "Deconstruction and reconstruction are possibly the principles that guided the German artist," said the curator of the exhibition. If at first glance the figure is misshapen or unrecognizable, "when we identify it, we have the feeling of rebuilding it."
