Mostra: I don't believe in a God that doesn't know how to dance
5' . 2017 . SP


On Aterro do Flamengo, in an indefinite time, an ancestral black goddess observes the fire that, in 1978, destroyed almost the entire MAM collection. Incarnating all the forgotten black and transsexual bodies, this vindictive ghost occupies and eroticizes what remains of a city for which human life is of little worth.

Luiz Roque

He was born in 1979, lives and works in São Paulo. His works inhabit the space between cinema, art and critical theory in a realm of political disputes - both real and imaginary - and comment on the dissociative conditions in which bodies meet. In his films, the artist crosses different territories, such as the sci-fi genre and the legacy of modernism, to capture and propose ingenious and imaginatively sensual scenarios. He has already exhibited at the São Paulo and Mercosur Biennials, MASP and Kunsthalle (Vienna).
