The present work is part of the exhibition RATSREPUS, a skateboard and contemporary art project by myself and Akira Shiroma in Rio. I’m a former professional skateboarder, known today as contemporary artist; Akira is a future contemporary artist, known today as professional skateboarder. Together we inspire and influence each other, working together on different projects. From my obsession with Superman, came the connection with the character Bizarro, this enemy from a parallel universe where everything is inverted, strange and pointless.
Imagine two skateboards in Bizarro's world. They move in a different ways, wearing strange and elegant costumes, and they are headless. Cidade das Artes, the monumental architectural project in Barra neighborhood, became the ideal ghost zone for the production. The videos and photos from the performance developed into a video piece, with soundtrack also composed by me, a series of collages, a zine, and a t-shirt. The camera I used for this project was a Hasselblad H4D, with 80mm f 2.8 lenses, for the best resolution.
