Corrugated steel and wood

244x446x35cm

Project for "Fucking Globo", march 2020, Luanda, Angola.  
Corrugated steel is an iconic material part of the aesthetics of Angolan society. It covers or walls most of the musseques (shanty towns). 
By using this cheap industrial material, which is very resistant, the artist enhances its simplicity in relation to the people, making connections between the symbolism of the corrugated steel and the word Não (No), a word that limits the space between the I and the Other. A word with unique power and value in the social and political sphere, used to build and shape society.
