Fabulous exhibition Ana Mazzei. Sleepwalk at Green Art Gallery

Reading: < 1 min

Ana Mazzei’s second solo exhibition, Sleepwalk, at Green Art Gallery takes the fragmented, half-seen consciousness of waking sleep. This exhibition conjuring a nocturnal realm of waking dreams through which viewers are invited to walk.

Creating figures, forms, and props from a minimalist toolbox of wood, wax, paint, and found objects, Ana Mazzei makes stages out of them.

A thin black curtain stitched with small golden pieces cuts across the room at the entrance of the exhibition

Hung on the wall are Cogumelo V and Cogumelo II: little wooden works depicting minimalist architectural structures evocative of de Chirico’s surrealist settings. In the former, dark blue stairs descend from the side of a blue tower, while the latter shows a rainbow-striped arch reaching up from a rectangle that continues the colour gradation

The viewer is always an integral part of her work and is often invited to be a performer through engaging with the space.  Artist does not restrict herself to any one medium, instead incorporating sculpture, photography, prints, video, and sound into her installations.

Ana’s works of art takes a look at the half-seen consciousness of waking sleep.

Ana Mazzei draws upon literature and theatricality to create her installations and sculptures, which often resemble imaginary scenarios where props are shifted from their typical function. Her work has been exhibited in the Museu de Arte de São Paulo, SESC Pompéia, and Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea, among other art institutions. Mazzei lives and works in São Paulo.
