We would like to invite everyone to the opening of the exhibition Simbio at Palacio das Artes, Belo Horizonte (Brazil). Simbio is an exhibition where the six invited artists must work with two collaborators and where the result should reflect this process done at six hands. Carlos Teixeira(Vazio S/A) invited architect Fernando Maculan (expography) and artist Leonardo Costa Braga (photo essay) to jointly submit “Grafts”, a work that employs the process of a garden as its starting point.
Simbio reaches its second edition and once again have the dialogue between the arts as its main moto. The project – conceived by art director Jeff Santos and conducted by Mercado Moderno – proposes to approach issues such as collaborative art and artistic symbiosis. “Simbio acts to contribute to the formation of new creators, enabling the research, training, exchange, circulation and production of thought in various forms of artistic expression,” says the director. At first, six artists from different areas were invited, and then each selected two or three collaborators from a field of knowledge different than theirs, to then develop a work to be exhibited from April 24 to May 13. The artists are: Binho Barreto (design), Carlos Teixeira (architecture), Clarissa Campolina (audiovisual), Felipe Turcheti (multimedia and programming), Julia Panades (poetry) and Raquel Schembri (illustration).

Grafting is a project that began as an investigation into the passage of time in a garden, and explores nature as a process of resistances and resignations, frictions and attractions, growth and rejection. Work designed at six hands, the photographer Leonardo Costa Braga made a new essay that departs from the state in which the garden is today, while the architect Fernando Maculan made the museography starting from objects in process of decomposition that represent the time, resistances and the resignations of the garden.
