“Smoke Signals” referes to the story of the explorer P. Fawcett who collected enough information to believe in the existence of a lost city in Mato Grosso. In 1926 he went into the jungle and got lost in the attempt to find it. The journey that the artist made in 2016 was a way to give continuity to this chain, to build the entrance to this lost city, to be able to see it in first hand. This journey gave rise to a film, a series of drawings and objects. Project realized for the 32nd São Paulo Biennial – Incerteza Viva
