Pablo Lobato
Bronze revirado

(2011)

Sept 1, 2012–Sept 30, 2012

This festive video rings in our ongoing Via Brasil project with an impressive display of choreographed physicality. Brazilian video artist Pablo Lobato records the great efforts—requiring a tension-filled coordination of strength, timing, and agility—a large team of able-bodied young men give to ring a hulking bell. The narrow, vertical image (created by placing the video projector on its side) mirrors the narrow bell tower of a colonial-era church in the historic town of São João del Rei, in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais. Lobato reminds us of the extraordinary labors and traditions that continue endure even in an era when everything seems to be automated. (5 mins., video)
