exhibition_ 28/08/2021 til 06/11/2021

The exhibition references the 1970 film of the same name by director Elyseu Viscoti (Rio de Janeiro, 1939-2014, son of painter Eliseu Visconti), about a grotesque, dysfunctional family ruling over a tropical paradise south of Ecuador. The synopsis of Visconti's film could easily mirror the Brazilian political scene in 2021: Babaloo, the mythical island, is inhabited by creatures of all kinds: these are convulsive bodies in a continuous trance, delirious rats and zombies wandering in the incessant sunlight that never sets.
