Unavoidable/ Unacceptable (2015)
Commissioned for the exhibition Encruzilhada, these works arose from the identification of a structural need – bus passes for students of a school that is, in part, managed by the Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro. Through contacts made between the OS OCA LAGE and the Secretaries (State and Municipal) of Transport, the integration of the students of EAV Parque Lage into the “RioCard Gratuidades” system was proposed in order to guarantee access to transportation as a “need-work”.
Throughout the exhibition, there was an expectation of a social benefit, and the piece Untitled (Announcement) contained an interactive link where visitors could continue following the development of the process (which was not completed in the end due to a lack of response from public agents). A magnetized photograph promised to invalidate any magnetic material, including social benefit cards; and to ensure the safety of the public, a third piece, Untitled (Caution Note), showed the risks for those who approached the work.
