Cavazaque Piu Piu
Musa paradisiaca

Opening: 4 May, 4pm
   
Cavazaque Piu Piu is a solo exhibition by Musa paradisiaca that proposes an environment for direct and non-mediated knowledge through approximations and highlights. This experience is made possible as lights electronically programmed synchronise a set of objects and a sound piece.
   
   
“So, we spoke about a history of smells… one that is yet to be done. This would imply knowing everything at least once (...).”
   
                           For a history of smells, sound piece, 2010-2019,
    
                           Musa paradisiaca with Paulo Queiroz and Nada T. Roberts
