Hands, Spells and Papers, Ana Mazzei

Installation view at at La Galerie Centre d'Art Contemporain

Noisy-le-sec, France, 2018

Fresh from a residency in France this summer, resulting in the exhibition Hands, Spells and Papers at La Galerie, Centre d’Art Contemporain, as well as inclusion in the 32nd Sao Paulo Biennial, Brazilian artist Ana Mazzei’s work brings together sculptural and performative elements to create immersive installations which touch upon ideas of architectural studies and masterplans, and the relationship between the work and the gallery space, as well as the viewer.

As the curator Camila Bechelany describes so succinctly, Mazzei’s work encompasses “the eternal and diverse relations between man and history: landscapes, architectures, fictions, theories and archives… pieces and fragments of myths, lives and fictions that are represented in drawings, videos, sculptures and installations.” In Mazzei’s upcoming exhibition this November at Green Art Gallery in Dubai, she will build further upon recent artistic investigations, in what she refers to as questions of “placement, identity and spirituality.”
