Erika Verzutti is currently presenting a series of new works made in collaboration with Anderson Borba as part of the second edition of the Vitrine project at, Pivô, São Paulo, Brazil. Curated by Fernanda Brenner, the space invites artist duos to create new works in collaboration.
‘Despite their uniquely different styles, the collaborative work seamlessly merged Verzutti’s unmistakable tactility and visual vocabulary and Borba’s quasi-bodies and rugged surfaces. As American critic Jill Jonhston once wrote about dancer Anna Sokolow and her performance in a Merce Cunningham production in 1961: ‘Miss Sokolow doesn’t pull any punches. The tension is right there, bam, raw, undistilled.’ Verzutti and Borba share a similar ‘staccato’ approach to sculpture-making. Their process is one of fast decisions and rapid movements. Every hesitation fuels a restless tread of free associations and quirky solutions.’
