Patrícia Ferreira Pará Yxapy – Letter from a Guarani Woman in Search of the Land without Evil

The solo exhibition at SAVVY Contemporary, curated by Brazilian filmmaker and visual artist Anna Azevedo, presents a collection of new works by Patrícia Ferreira Pará Yxapy while exploring and revealing at its core the archive behind her audiovisual journey. Video installations, photographs, drawings, sculptures, handicrafts, film, and sonic excerpts narrate letters written by an indigenous woman to the Juruá, the non-indigenous. Patrícia features in them as both artist and subject – through intimate, delicate and painful thoughts on the feminine, on spirituality, colonization, and the relationship to land.
