Exhibition “The archipelagos of Nara Guichon” remains in Chapecó until Thursday (22)

There are only a few days left for the exhibition to close.”The archipelagos of Nara Guichon”, by textile artist, designer and environmentalist Nara Guichon🇧🇷 After passing through Laguna and Blumenau, the exhibition is in Chapecó, where it will remain until next Thursday (22). The works are displayed in the Municipal Art Gallery of the Center for Culture and Events Plínio Arlindo de Nes, in the center. The visitation can be done from Monday to Monday, from 9 am to 16 pm.

“The archipelagos of Nara Guichon” presents ten works developed by Nara Guichon, an artist born in Santa Maria (RS) and based in Florianópolis. All of them have as main raw material the element responsible for 50% of the world's ocean pollution: fishing nets. Abandoned as rubbish and collected along the coast of Santa Catarina, fishing nets are the basis for her work. Nara also uses plastic bags, fabrics rejected by the textile industry and even discarded clothes. Her work, therefore, is based on reuse and resignification as a means of shouting for the oceans that are suffocating due to irresponsible disposal.

The exhibition is curated by critic and art historian Paula Ramos, professor at the Institute of Arts at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul.

The project “The archipelagos of Nara Guichon” was awarded the Elisabete Anderle Culture Support Award (2021), and carried out with funds from the State of Santa Catarina through the Catarinense Culture Foundation.
