Three films by Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca

YOU ARE SEEING THINGS

04 June - 08 September

VISUAL Carlow are delighted to present the first exhibition of artists Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin De Burca’s work in Ireland. YOU ARE SEEING THINGS, a triptych of films Faz Que vai / Set To Go(2015), Estás Vendo Coisas / You Are Seeing Things (2016) and Terremoto Santo / Holy Tremor (2017).

These three short, narrative works blend fiction and documentary. Through music, dialogues and dance the artists evoke the complex interconnectedness in Brazilian popular culture of class, gender, race, religion and the economy.

Together these films  bear witness to the powerful do-it-yourself culture in Northeast Brazil that is helping to shape a new collective identity through new music and dance cultures, and emergent religious movements.

Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca are currently representing Brazil at the Venice Biennale with the work Swinguerra May 11–November 24, 2019.
