A new exhibition by a Brazilian artist Arthur Scovino, Caboclo of the Afflicted, is opening 3rd June at Solyanka State Gallery, part of the Eternal Performance Art Festival PYRFYR. Scovino's works will be presented in the four rooms of the Salt space for just over one month, inviting visitors to set off on a liturgical journey along Caboclo labyrinths - a collective image of those origins of ethnic diversity in Brazil, as well as the aboriginal tribes' rituals and modern societies everyday phenomena. In his artistic practice Scovino uses performance, installation, photography, video and drawings; his aesthetics charged with eroticism, religious symbols, popular culture and social allegory. Everything that comes into the view of the artist becomes a cultural code, a master key, efficient for opening all sorts of doors; it even gains access to human hearts, whether Brazilian, Russian or any other. During the opening week of the exhibition Arthur Scovino will give a public talk, intending to share the nuances of his artistic vision; he will also present several live performances and happenings that he will create in collaboration with Moscow-based artists of different genres. These will become part of the so-called Platform for Sporadic Performances. Some of the performances are scheduled, but others will not be announced for a particular date or time. Visitors will have a chance not only to watch but also to join in and become part of the performative space; they may even encounter their own Caboclo. Quoting the artist, "Caboclo emerges unexpectedly. Its manifestations are scattered along the way as casual acquaintances, odours and images".
