Memórias do Concílio de Trento: elementos de micro-história
Geology Museum Bahia – Federal University of Bahia. Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
In this solo exhibition, Flavio Marzadro cuts pieces of history and confronts us with what we know of the Council of Trent as a historical event. With this experience, the artist still does a dip in their ancestors, because even if living in Brazil for just over three years, continues with strong ties to Trent, his home region, located in northern Italy.
The curator of Leda Doborah selected a set of works that Marzadro poetically explores the relationship between Trentino man and his memories in such a remarkable period for that society, but also for the entire Western culture.
This relationship is problematized through decontextualized presentation and representations revisited of artifacts that comprised the material culture or micro-history of the Council of Trent. From this concept, the artist Flavio Marzadro search, in his own words, “to see, read, and speak poetically reveal about the meanings in things that are artifacts of material culture that are forgotten, invisible, out of habit, laziness or blindness social “.
