Rio de Janeiro Drawings / Bart Lodewijks

Roma Publication 271

Bart Lodewijks: I spent two winters and one summer in Rio de Janeiro in search of suitable places for my chalk drawings. I entrusted myself to local residents who led me to places which were scenes of everyday life. Places that dont really catch the eye and which only disclose their special character to those who return regularly. I made my drawings on the streets, in a bar, in a church square and in a villa, but most of the time I frequented a small favela bordering on the end of the no-through Rua Benjamin Constant, the street I was staying in. I have written a story about life in this neighbourhood and the drawings I made there. Text in English and Portuguese. Made possible with the support of: Capacete, Rio de Janeiro; Mondriaan Fund; Central de Cultura Brasil & Holanda; Projeto Legal, Rio de Janeiro.
