Rocha Pitta: Temporal Map of a non Sedimented Land #6
Thiago Rocha Pitta’s temporal and sensitive art often depicts environments from his native Brazil. Through watercolor, photography, sculpture, and video, Rocha Pitta focuses on small, yet emotive elements of the natural world, whether ocean tide, rainclouds, or trails of sap. In this exhibition, Rocha Pitta develops his study of nature through an installation of five videos, each depicting a different desert terrain in Argentina. Referred to as “maps,” these videos capture a deceptively small physical alteration in the land that causes it to either fall, collapse, or become wet or dry.
