Marlene Monteiro Freitas . Lisbon . Portugal

Installation for hundreds of music stands  

In Cattivo, music stands are explored to the limit of their expressive properties, their ability to embody emotional states and make decisions, manipulating themselves and other objects, presenting themselves as a team in a symphonic community with different instruments, rhythms, melodic lines… As a stage, garden or dollhouse, the installation lies between the vegetable, the animal and the fantasy world. 

Marlene Monteiro Freitas, who was born and grew up in Cape Verde, creates opulent, formally rigorous and poetic image worlds. In 2018, she was awarded the Silver Lion in the Venice Biennale in the category of dance.
