The project << Those who are not >> dialogues with the geological samples in a hidden situation from the Museum's Technical Reserve. By bringing to light this rich collection, I give a speculative narrative regarding the existence of these samples in a state of readiness.

 

The video moves through the cabinets and drawers along a long corridor, presenting the geological samples as they are conditioned in plastic or cardboard boxes. Usually sorted into groups or separated to be weighed and measured, they become characters in a fictional narrative that takes a perspective on minerals in an ever-changing world and brings their insights into humans, newly arrived beings from a deep geological time.

Themes such as mining activity, healing stones and popular beliefs are raised here in order to bring up considerations about our relationship with minerals.

 

The video << Those who are not >> will be at the Jardim Mineral exhibition at MMGerdau between December 11, 2021 and March 27, 2022. Access the exhibition website here to watch the full video.
