Missings

 

Missing | 2003 / 2005 | Arq digital 
 
Originally the 'Missing' series was created for the internet and is made up of innumerable posters with photographs and telephone numbers. As with previous works, Vieira operates here with a vocabulary of urban routine, shuffling its elements in order to break the routine of how people see their city. All of the 'Missing' are presented with their back to you and each with only their first names shown. Pablo, Auguste, Toulouse, José, Mira, Anita, Iberê. So as not to make an immediate link with the history of art, the telephone number for information reveals the message.  I received a long list of e-mails regularly during 2003 and 2004 of several posters per week.  JULIANA MONACHESI (curator)
