Janaina Mello Landini: Ciclotrama 50 (wind), 2018

The installation Ciclotrama 50 (Wind), by the Brazilian artist Janaina Mello Landini, was recently included in the collection of the Fondation Carmignac, in France. The work is currently on display in the inaugural exhibition of the institution headquarter new building, in the Île de Porquerolles.

Curated by Dieter Buchhart, “Sea of Desire” was conceived to establish a dialogue between the artistic output by iconic names, such as Sandro Botticelli, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Roy Lichtenstein, Gerhard Richter, Andreas Gursky, Keith Haring, Martial Raysse, and emerging ones like Jeppe Hein, Olaf Breuning and Jean Denant. The collection was started 27 years ago by Edouard Carmignac.

Made with ropes that are gradually divided into minimum thicknesses, the "Ciclotrama" series started from the artist's research about the rhizomes, a kind of root that grows horizontally and indefinitely. Janaina's main idea is to develop a thought of a spatial drawing using the experience of physical strength and tension between the wires, pointing to an endless interconnectivity and interdependence of each individual trajectory in the system as a whole.
