Marcelo Amorim

Marcelo Amorim collects and re-appropriates images, using them as a starting point to produce drawings, paintings and videos. Taken from private collections, manuals, school books, social media, amongst others, the images come from various different sources and seem to have been produced in a distant past. Through montage and transpositions, the artist makes room for the original intentions, particularities and gestures contained to be manifested, revealing their role in maintaining the status quo, and hence raising awareness to the historical cultural values and its evolution throughout time. opens in a new window
