Fishermen from a village on the northeast coast of Brazil enact a ritual of embracing the fish they have caught. The affectionate gesture that accompanies the passage of death is a testament to a relationship between species that is imbued with strength, violence and domination.


BIO

Jonathas de Andrade was born in Maceio (Brazil) in 1982, and currently lives in Recife. His work investigates social, political, cultural and ideological matters which are at risk of vanishing from collective memory: what humanity chooses to retain or allows to sink into oblivion. Through a variety of processes involving photography, research, documentation and personal experience, Jonathas summons up memory and offers a deliberation on various forms of collective amnesia. Exhibitions include Under the Same Sun, Guggenheim NY; 11th Dakar Biennial, Senegal; The Ungovernables, 12e Biennale de Lyon, 2nd New Museum Triennial; 12th Istanbul Biennial, 29th Bienal de São Paulo, 7th Bienal do Mercosul (Porto Alegre), 32 Panorama da Arte Brasileira (MAM-São Paulo), Mythologies - Cite des Arts Paris, Galeria Vermelho (São Paulo), The Right to the City – Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Better Homes - Sculpture Center - Long Island City – USA, Tropikalizmy - Gdańsk City Gallery - Gdańsk – Poland, When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes - CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art – San Francisco, The Insides are on the Outside, Casa de Vidro e SESC Pompéia – São Paulo. De Andrade has been the recipient of Prêmio Marcantônio Vilaça, finalist of Premio Pipa (2011) and received a special mention at Future Generation Prize.
