Braços Verdes e Olhos Cheios de Asas by Elsa Leydier

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

Through the process of construction and deconstruction of images representing the region of the Amazon, this work is an attempt to make a poetic and subjective representation of the Amazon. By revisiting images (vernacular and press images that contribute to the construction of the imaginary of the place, along with photographs I took in the Amazon region), and by inserting them in a flux of montages, collages, and plastic interventions, the image of the Amazon appears then as a visual construction. A construction made of fragments extracted from glossy magazines pages and from an everyday-life paced by the rhythm of the flows of the Rio Negro and the Amazon River.
