Selected Artist

Scar is an exhibition that aims to imagine the city and the landscape as a living organism, displaying the marks of its development and bringing people together within it. It consists of three series of work that uses documentary photography, embroidery and an installation to capture and relate different expressions of damage.

Camila Cavalcante is a visual artist from Brazil interested in the social and sentimental perception of art. She uses documentary photography intertwined with embroidery to create a place in which the idea of ‘private’ and ‘public’ overlap and complement each other; where nature, buildings and bodies share the same scars.
