La galerie de la Biennale
Graffiti cut into blackness, letters materialising out of the light: Carlos Motta’s work for the Biennale presents political slogans written directly on the walls in letters of fire. Related to another piece on show at the MACLyon – a proposal for new ways of reliving historical moments – "Untitled (Graffiti Cuts)" takes a distinctive, detailed look at the screams of rage that cover the walls of our cities. Pulling them out of context and putting them on the walls of a museum, Motta uses documentary and archival strategies in a way that injects fresh power into graffiti we usually only glance at in passing.
