Quarta-feira de cinzas/Epilogue

(2006)

Feb 1, 2014–Feb 28, 2014

You can’t think of February and Brazil without thinking of Carnival. This captivating collaboration by two of Brazil’s leading contemporary artists looks at the pre-Lenten party’s aftermath (the video’s title, in Portuguese, translates as “Ash Wednesday”) from an insect’s point of view. Ants scurry around in their own celebration, carrying stray confetti from the night before. The sound artists O Grivo created a delightful soundtrack of miniature sambas for this absurd, mesmerizing carnival. (6 mins., video)
