entrevidasPERFORMANCE AND ARTIST TALK "ENTREVIDAS" with Brazilian artist Ana Maria Maiolino
Anna Maria Maiolino: Entrevidas (Between Lives) • Museum of Art and Design, MDC As an immigrant coming of age in a politically unstable Brazil,Anna Maria Maiolino searched for a new language to articulate everyday human existence. One of the most important artists of her generation, Maiolino’s multidisciplinary practice has alwayssought to connect art and life, to give structure to primordial experiences of language,self, and the body. The performance-installation Entrevidas(Between Lives),was originally conceived in1981,during the period between the end of Brazil’s military dictatorship and itsreturn to democracy.Spectators were invited to cross an obstacle course of hundreds of eggs on a cobbled street of Rio de Janeiro to experience feelings of uncertainty and risk,but also to imagine the resiliency of life and of new beginnings.Revisiting the installation today,the artist points to the precariousness and potential of the present moment. Anna Maria Maiolino was born in Italy in1942 and migrated to Brazil in1960.
