Info: BPA is pleased to announce SUPER-NATURAL. lift the veil with video works by Adriano Amaral (Brazil), Nídia Aranha (Brazil), Vitória Cribb (Brazil), Débora Delmar (Mexico), Ilê Sartuzi (Brazil), Wisrah Villefort (Brazil), and Janaina Wagner (Brazil). The show brings together seven artists who deconstruct the notion of nature within culture and society in their research and practice. Invited to write a text in response to the project first installed in São Paulo, Lívia Benedetti and Marcela Vieira highlighted a relationship between the works presented at the exhibition and the universe of the artist Kanye West. The parallel built by the writers possibly resides in the fact that the work of the artists in SUPER-NATURAL exist at the intersection between fascination and criticism – something that Mark Fisher once qualified as a juxtaposition of celestial longing and hypernaturalist kynicism when analyzing Spaceship, a song that Fisher pointed out as the heart of the rapper’s first album.
