Mariannita Luzzati Exhibition – Embassy of Brazil – 10-26 January 2020

 
The exhibition has been conceived by Luzzati to deal with the concept of migrant vegetation. She explores physical and spiritual paths traced by man on the planet, defining the geological physiognomy of different civilisations throughout the ages.
 
Brazilian landscape is known for  its extraordinary diversity. An example of it is the Botanical Garden in Rio de Janeiro created by Prince Dom João de Bragança in 1811 to acclimatise plants brought from East India to Brazil. The creation of this huge botanical park changed the climate and landscape of the city and was fundamental in order to create an environment for the species that coexist with the surrounding tropical forests.
 
In order to create a counterpoint with a wider idea of Brazil, Luzzati invited to join this exhibition the ceramist Carina Ciscato, whose works bring materials from different regions of the world looking for unconventional shapes, altering the usual proportions and sizes to question space and volume, function and purpose, balance and fragility, in search of its own aesthetic, allowing new meanings and new observations. 
 
Born in São Paulo, Luzzati represented Brazil at the 22nd São Paulo International Biennial. Her works are displayed in important public collections in Brazil and abroad such as: Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts in Tokyo, Museu de Arte de Brasília; Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, University of Essex in Colchester, and The British Museum in London.
 
 
The exhibition is open to the public at the Embassy of Brazil in London from 10 to 26 January, Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm. Free admission.
