Obra-Mole (1964) by Brazilian artist Lygia Clark, Concave / Convex (1947) by Italian artist Bruno Munari and Tripartite Unity (1948 -49) of the Swiss, Max Bill were displayed within the Brazil Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale this year .

"We (the curatorial team) believe that artists should be chosen so that they provide a contribution to the understanding of contemporary Brazilian art," said curator Luis Pérez-Oramas, implying that, in his view, the works of Fervenza and Mlászho, juxtaposed with Bill Clark, and Munari will help to enhance the artistic richness of Brazil. The curator joined the work of these contemporary artists of the past who responded to MöbiusStrip, a geometric shape with only one surface, and it is viewed as a form of twisted ribbon.

The Inside / Outside therefore collide to support art and contemporary thought, time and again embodying one of the strongest modern Brazilian narratives: that of a culture consists of a unceasing creative and metabolism of the other.
