Luciana Caravello Arte Contemporânea – Leonardo Finotti: Pelada
Rio de Janeiro gallery Luciana Caravello’s current exhibition Pelada presents new photography works by Leonardo Finotti, documenting make-shift soccer fields is São Paulo’s peripheral neighborhoods. Topically relevant, in light of the current World Cup hosted in Brazil, Finotti turns his lens from the usual architectural sites he documents to these soccer fields as expression of both Brazilian’s passion for the sport and inventive, resourceful nature. Captured in aerial views, the photographic body of work also reveals the DYI soccer fields as landscapes indicative of their liminal stance both in society and urban development; gallerist Luciana Caravello explains: “Most of these fields are the only public spaces in these neighborhoods, and they are true areas of resistance to the public domain. They show, without publicity or sponsors, the true power of the relationship between soccer and people, art and politics.” Check here for more information.
