SANDRA CINTO: COSMIC GARDEN: GINZA MAISON HERMÈS, TOKYO
The Hermès Foundation is pleased to announce the exhibition "Cosmic Garden" by Sandra Sint, an artist based in São Paulo, Brazil. Born in Brazil in 1968, Sint has been involved in many installations that are related to space, mainly drawing using stars, crystals, and waves as motifs. In Japan, he has participated in the Toyota City Museum of Art (2008) and stay production at Aomori Public University International Art Center Aomori (2015), as well as solo exhibitions in countries such as the United States, Brazil and Spain, operated by the Seattle Art Museum. We also produce public art such as murals from the Olympic Sculpture Park. In addition, he presides over "Atelier Fidalga" with his partner, Albano Afonso, and actively engages in artistic exchange such as exhibitions and residencies in Brazil and abroad.
For Sint, drawing is an introspective language that shares people's experiences, memories and dreams, but it is also an important way to confront time, and also means meditation and rest. The thin lines of white and silver portray the scenes associated with the sublime human power, such as the raging sea, storms, and the sky, but what Shint asks here is that destruction and violence by natural power itself No, it is time for us humans to face emotions when faced with situations such as catastrophe and chaos.
In this exhibition, while using the blue gradation that symbolically represents the universe, we will make an installation that abstractly overlaps the flow of life and the space-time of the universe. These are done in collaboration with Sint and several artists who are intimate, but the paintings over a period of several days lead to the repetitive rhythms and vibrations of the drawing connecting in each other's meditation and into space. It creates a characteristic that resonates.
