Brasilia Broadcast

Sculpture 40x60x280 cm. sound: 8 min.wood, cd player, speaker, card box. 2005/2006

A falling speaker, usually found in old folk or religious traditional parties, where music or political speeches where disseminated to the population. Here a sound collage of political speeches from diverse periods of Brazilian history are running in loop, in a parody and ironic way, where official discourses from dictatorship period seems almost as nonsense talk.

Exhibited at:
Funarte – Espaço ECCO, Brasilia 2006.
