This in an artwork

This in an artwork  | 2002 - 2004 | Roadworks and text.  View exhibition Castelinho do Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro, RJ

This in an artwork makes a play on words with the notorious painting ( Trahison de image / La trahison des images  ) of Ren'e Magritte. Using a code full of urban life (the signs that warn of “Roadworks in so many metres”), Vieira creates a mechanism of invisibility of his artworks, or better, guarantees the success of his work when it is not immediately identified at first sight.
