Débora Bolsoni, Lesson of mimesis, 2004-2006. Formica and wood, variable dimensions.

Lição de mímese [A Lesson in Mimesis] (2004-2006), by the Rio de Janeiro-born artist Débora Bolsoni, donated to the museum by Iguatemi in the context of the 2017 SP-Arte art fair. Regarded as a crucial work in the artist’s trajectory, it is comprised of various chalkboards in different shapes with wooden frames, resembling mirrors. These mirrors reflect nothing, but can, however, receive chalk drawings, which prompts a discussion about the mimetic effect of art and its capacity for duplicating reality. Born in 1975 in Rio de Janeiro, Bolsoni holds an MA in Visual Poetics from the Escola de Comunicações e Artes – USP [School of Communication and Arts of the University of São Paulo] (2014). She also studied at the EAV Parque Lage in Rio de Janeiro (1991-1993) and at Saint Martin’s School of Art, in London (1933).
