Unavoidable/ Unacceptable (2015)

Commissioned for the exhibition Encruzilhada, this series arose from the identification of a structural need – bus tickets for students at a school that is, in part, administered by the State Government of Rio de Janeiro. Through contacts made between OS OCA LAGE and the Secretariats (State and Municipal) of Transport, the integration of EAV Parque Lage students into the RioCard Gratuidades system was proposed in order to guarantee access to transportation as a “necessity-work”.

Throughout the exhibition, the expectation of a social benefit was created and the photo Untitled (Warning Note) contained an interactive link through which the visitor could follow the development of the process (not completed due to lack of response from public officials). And to remember the destructive character that this series contains, a magnetized photograph (Invalidate your credits here) promises to invalidate any magnetic material, including social benefit cards. To ensure the safety of visitors, another photo, Untitled (Caution Note), shows the risks for those who approach very close to the work.
