Brazilian artist Pedro Zylbersztajn (SMACT ’18) will perform “brickwork” (2017), a physical record of the process of re/constitution of language. Unfolding as a 12″ disc/book and a performance, it is based on a circular text that regards language use as a permanent building site. The makeshift process of fabricating the record creates, in itself, a series of impediments to a pristine listening of the words. As the needle progresses and radial distances diminish, textural noises take over and sound resolution decreases. Each side of the record provides new breath to the text, that degenerates and regenerates differently for every cycle.

A conversation with Americas Society Chief Curator and Director of Visual Arts Gabriela Rangel will follow the performance.
