CHROMAKEYING | SÃO PAULO | 2012
Vanishing of a wall | Desapariçao d'um muro





Action at Largo da Batata’s square, a space that is currently under a significant transformation within the context of gentrification of the area. Chromakeying “vanishes” one of the walls encircling part of Largo da Batata’s surface, rendering visible the construction site of a shopping mall built after the demolition of a block and the consequent displacement of inhabitants and street vendors.
Inspired by both the world of illusionism of early cinema and the tradition of site-specific art, Chromakeying seeks to vanish temporarily –in real time and on site- some urban devices. By intervening these devices –painting or covering them with green color so that they function as a Chroma screen- this work enhances the presence and role of these devices in shaping urban life, while they simultaneously “vanish” at the footage recorded on site.
Chromakeying|São Paulo was produced during a residence at LABMIS, sponsored by Can Xalant (Centre de creació i pensament contemporani de Mataró. Spain) and MIS (Museu da Imagem e do Som. Sao Paulo, Brazil).
