Angels' camp

Intervention composed of coloured camping tents installed vertically on the architecture of buildings and constructions.

Since 2002, I have been carrying out this spiritually motivated work, which was born with the reading of Psalm 34:8: ''The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him and delivers them''.

The perception of angels camped in suspended places and the idea of protection permeate the concept of the work, considered the poetic apex of the interventions. During the night, the lighting inside the tents transforms the composition and reminds us that it is always possible to be supported by art.

In Brazil, the work has won awards at the Santa Catarina Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Paraná. Abroad, he participated in exhibitions in France (Paris and Metz), Switzerland (Fribourg and Nyon) and Cuba (Havana).
