Based on this title, the artist articulates a video installation with the free distribution of 5,000 sticker albums at Sesc Pompeia (São Paulo), a project by architect Lina Bo Bardi, for the show “A Parábola do Progresso”, the parable of progress, in free translation. The primordial grouping of postage stamps and imprints belonging to the cmb archive served as a source for the conceptualized themes around a the act of collecting, alternative image circulation, and curatorship. The broad set of images used in the project, mostly available in the public domain, is offered as a discussion ignitor on the connections between colonialism and climate change.
