A Marvellous Entanglement world première

Victoria Miro Gallery
7 June - 27 July 2019

Inspired by one of Brazil's most influential architects, Lina Bo Bardi – A Marvellous Entanglement, which Victoria Miro Gallery opens next month, is a meditation on the ideas and legacy of the visionary modernist (1914–1992). The exhibition includes photographs and Isaac Julien’s latest nine-screen installation, which draws its title from an evocative passage in one of the architect and designer's letters: ‘Linear time is a western invention; time is not linear, it is a marvellous entanglement, where at any moment points can be chosen and solutions invented without beginning or end.’


In the film installation, Lina Bo Bardi is interpreted by Oscar-nominated great dame of Brazilian theatre Fernanda Montenegro, and by her daughter, Cannes-awarded actor Fernanda Torres. Filmed in some of the most iconic public spaces created by Lina Bo Bardi, the film installation is an open-ended reflection on her approach to architecture and Brazilian culture.
