Iole de Freitas
The Galería Silvia Cintra + Box4 presents a conversation with Brazilian artist Iole de Freitas about the use of stainless steel in her most recent works.

Using as introduction the multiple created for ArtNexus in 2013, which references her monumental installation at Casa Daros, de Freitas talks about the institutions in which she has presented the works made with polycarbonate sheets, the Fundación Ibere Camargo, and about the concept behind her question "what are museum walls for."

For her most recent works, de Freitas decided to replace the polycarbonate sheets with stainless steel ones, a material that requires more precise measuring and that generates other types of effects. In the video de Freitas presents small pieces created for the gallery and defines them as "structural poetic references;" references that she also included in monumental works that were part of her most recent exhibition at the Museu de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro (MAM).
