In an interior space of Maus Hábitos, a few dozen or even hundreds of small-scale paper figures will appear, presented and pasted on the wall, or ceiling, in profile for the viewer. The result will be a visual installation that will involve the entire space. The curious will be surrounded and “suffocated” by the disconcerting presence of features of unusual beings looking constantly at us, as spectators. The paper looks will spread and multiply in all angles and directions. The entire environment in this corrosive and disturbing universe, will make the observer feel repressed and strange in that circuit, or in its entire surrounding perimeter.
Marco Fagundes has a degree in fine arts/painting. A not so linear path has led the artist to experience some fields of expression, different artistic forms and even different activities and interventions. In his work we find installation (in inactive spaces) objects (transformed and recycled), painting, drawing, and more recently performance. He has been exhibiting regularly since 1997.
