Solange Pessoa has been invited to participate in the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia curated by Cecilia Alemani.
The exhibition, titled The Milk of Dreams after a book of the same name by surrealist artist Leonora Carrington, is grounded in many conversations with artists held in the last few years. The questions that kept emerging from these dialogues seem to capture this moment in history when the very survival of the species is threatened, but also to sum up many other inquiries that pervade the sciences, arts, and myths of our time. How is the definition of the human changing? What constitutes life, and what differentiates plant and animal, human and non-human? What are our responsibilities towards the planet, other people, and other life forms? And what would life look like without us?
