Mupi Gallery presents a new individual exhibition, this time by Kauê Gindri, part of The Politics of Images curated by João Baeta.
All narratives can be considered fictions. They can be the fruit of desire, of abandonment and alienation of oneself, of building a common ... They are often the redundant extension of events where the characters are fictitious entities. Who tells a story can always pretend to describe actual events or refer to real characters.Through the images that Kuaê Gindri gives us to see in the Mupi Gallery, we are confronted with what we think we know of. We know they are pipes, pipes of crack collected in the streets of big cities of Brazil. But they are not mere utilitarian objects, they are entity that speak for themselves. The stories they tell us are not the illusion of another world, for they have renounced what they could renounce. They are confined to a destiny is own thinking. Perhaps they refer to what Camus tells us: "One throws himself into myths, no doubt - but myths with no other depth than human pain and, like her inexhaustible. Not the divine fable that amuses and blinds, but the face, the gesture and the terrestrial drama wich are summed up in a difficult wisdom and a thought without tomorrow.”
