Ep.3 |Chris Burden
In an action that can be described as performative, a crane hoists 71 metal beams and releases them from 45 meters high on a pool of cement. In the third episode of the Retrato series, get to know the process of creating this work at the Institute, with accounts by the artist himself, collaborators, and curator Rodrigo Moura.
The Retrato series was made between 2011 and 2014 through the Federal Tax Incentive Law for Culture, sponsored by CBBM, presented by Inhotim, and accomplished with support of the Audiovisual Office, Ministry of Culture, and Federal Government back then. In 2020, the series was digitized and received subtitles to democratize its online access.
The series is also available at Inhotim’s YouTube channel, Instagram account, and Facebook profile.
