Exhibition “Correspondencia”
by Grupo Contos e Pontos

Trusteeship:  Grupo Contos e Pontos
Period: 25/04 to 25/05

The Museum Prudente de Moraes offers to the people the exhibition “Correspondencia”. Through a contemporary approach, the works with embroidery by the group Contos e Pontos can be understood as a mean of artistic manifestation, passing the limit traditionally given to this job. The process of work is individual, but in monthly meetings that happens the refeeding to the collective work – It is the moment to merge and sew talks which enrich even more the personal work.

Each project done by the group follows a different and singular dynamic, sometimes inspired by tales and chronicles , sometimes in poetry and hai cais, what is in common in the projects is the desire to express lived experiences.

Different of other projects done by the group, “Correspondecia” is specially authorial, because the group inspired itself by its own history and each one embroidered to another the story of this relationship. The draws guided this circle- name by name it was revealed, provoking the challenge of the construction of an image which related feelings to the selected person. This process lasted three years and the mail service (Correios- ECT) and its mailmen were the vehicles to the coming and goings of the final production of the 72 embroidered mails.

The time was occupied differently to the completion of this task. It stopped being a penalty and it enlarged itself so each one could dive in their memories and perceptions about their friend, about the 15-year relationship working on the ancient embroidering job. Anyway, it is about a production which stablishes with simplicity and delicacy, complex relationships and feeling manifestation.

Each embroidering measures approximately 12x18cm, they are small pearls, when together, have the gigantic power of friendship.
