auroras will foster an open dialogue between artists, critics, curators and the public
with exhibitions, site specific projects, publications and talks.
We are proud to present Amy Sillman’s first exhibition in Brazil that will bring together new paintings and drawings, shown in conjunction with a 13-meter-long polyptych composed of UV-printed metal plates. The show at auroras by the New York-based artist is the second iteration of “Temporary Object,” two interrelated exhibitions in which the artist uses a hybrid language of image-production to make visible the thinking processes inside the abstract paintings.
Brooklyn-based artist Rebecca Watson Horn’s first exhibition in Brazil brings together six abstract paintings that perform, conceal, and reveal writing untethered to vocabulary or speech. Horn’s work begins with specific words and phrases, but through an alchemical process of distillation her letter-forms become fluid lines, vessel-like volumes, and shapes reminiscent of bodies. The phrases are forgotten, articulation is resisted, the orientation of writing is undermined, original intentions are both obscured and subsumed. Letters become objects: their visual rhymes come the surface as their sound-values and semiotic reference recedes, yet something of their hidden meaning persists with symbolic, spell-like power.
We are pleased to present an exhibition by the artist Liuba Wolf (1923, Sofia, Bulgaria — 2005, São Paulo, Brazil) commemorating the centenary of her birth. The sculptor developed her work in Brazil, creating a very particular formal repertoire, a bestiary that followed a constructive logic and a specifically sculptural interest in the articulation between matter and empty spaces, line and movement.
