Throughout her career, Cinto has developed a vocabulary to create narratives and fantastic landscapes in which bridges, mountains, chasms, stairs, swings, chandeliers, night skies, turbulent seas, waterfalls and storms - drawn directly on walls, canvases and three-dimensional objects - evoke a metaphor of human odyssey and draw the limits of the language of drawing.
The exhibition Nocturne presents an installation with unpublished works and proposes a reflection on the artist's graphic work drawn more specifically from 1998, when she participated in the 24th International Biennial of São Paulo.
In music - recurrent language used by Sandra Cinto to establish relationships with the drawing - the term Night can mean a piano piece of intimate and contemplative expression; in this case, the artist revisits some elements and incorporates them in an immersive, monumental installation but with an introspective character:
"At times, we need to review everything that was done, to understand the next step... I think we are going through a moment where we need to look at everything we have done, to reflect how we want to build our future, I decided to make an autobiographical project, thinking of my condition as an artist, my drawing is my voice, it is how I recognize myself and dialogue with the world."
