Christina Oiticica

Exhibition title: Museu Nacional de Belas Artes

For the works at her 1997 exhibition at the Museu Nacional de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Christina built on her previous work around the female body. Her works showed details of the bodies of women aged 12 to 90, captured during small moments in their everyday life, such as hands with prayer beads, the foot of a ballet dancer as she puts on her slippers, a bust reflected in the mirror … “small acts that represent great gestures and help us fight the good fight every day”.
