We are excited to announce Florescendo Afundados, a new Artsy exclusive show with two very talented up and coming artists.
Artist Bianca Kann (b. 1995, São Paulo, Brazil) and filmmaker Julia Delmedico (b. 1995, New York, NY) teamed up to produce a series of photographs of Kann's sculptures framed in various natural locations. The photographs are available for purchase through Artsy- please browse here to see more, and take the opportunity to support these artists as they begin their artistic careers.
The show's title, Florescendo Afundados, refers to dual forces that the work evokes- a simultaneous feeling of blooming life with sunken despondence.
The forms appear to be isolated-- they are sometimes huddled together, often positioned dead center in the frame-- and despite their apparent exuberance and energy they appear to be speaking a language that nothing around can understand.
The sculptures captured in these photographs are decidedly not from the natural world: their bright colors, ceramic and silicone textures, and looped forms point to a history that is human-made.
By framing these human-made forms in nature, Kann and Delmedico create a narrative of the subjects' disconnectedness with the world they inhabit, a concept that gives way to a metaphor of the singularity of existence.
