Retrato Serie

Ep.5 |Matthew Barney

What is there in common between the Carnival of Salvador, performances, a major tractor, and a geodesic shaped gallery? They all compose the work De lama lâmina (2004-2009), on exhibition at Inhotim since 2009. This episode of the Retrato series shows the conception and production of this work by artist Matthew Barney. In addition to contextualizing its origin during Carnival in Salvador back in 2004, the video also brings the performative action that took place at Inhotim before its inauguration.

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.
