VIADUTO (2020/2021)


VIADUTO is inspired by the concept of party.

First, by its search and observation.

Then, by its experience and contemplation.

2013 is marked by significant events in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. One of them is the demolition of one of its fundamental constructions, Elevado da Perimetral, a viaduct connecting major city parts with the periphery. Renan Martins investigates that moment in time, together with musician Frankão, to connect with the party as a tool for political resistance and as practice for collectivity.
