Intervention on a beach in B├║zios, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The project consists in the appropriation of urban public spaces that have been forgotten, abandoned, or are sterile. Those spaces are occupied through artistic interventions that transform them into ceramic modules. The five members of the group choose the spaces with a critical eye over the city, seeking to humanize the urban environment and discuss how it is used and/or administered. The five members design, produce, and install the interventions. The result is a composite of panels, modules, and simple geometrical shapes, which when grouped construct more complex shapes. The final image is abstract. Using modern tiles, the group appropriates the aesthetics and the historical value of the tile in Brazilian culture, which arrived with the Portuguese national identity.
