MUSEU DE ARTE MODERNA DE SÃO PAULO, SÃO PAULO, BRASIL

07.02.2017 - 13.02.2017

Marcia Xavier presents the sound installation Mergulhe em Mim Para Poder Surgir de Mim [Dive in me in order to arise from me], as part of Projeto Parede [Project Wall], of Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo, inspired by the memories of the sounds of Córrego do Sapateiro waters.

The Córrego do Sapateiro, former Rio das Pedras, rises in Vila Mariana, crosses the Ibirapuera and 23 de Maio avenues, passes by the Park, where it supplies for both lakes, continues under the Santo Amaro and Juscelino Kubitschek avenues and falls into the Pinheiros river. Channeled in the 60s, its bed is still preserved inside the Ibirapuera park, beside the MAM Museum.
