From the Amazon rainforest

to the matchstick

Work carried out in co-authorship with Arthur do Carmo in the context of the Transamazônica project - Shared Imaginary

The artist reads an article published in the 1971 Realidade magazine about the process of making a matchstick in the Amazon rainforest. The act is performed in complete darkness, with reading being made possible by the light of burning matches.
