Marilene Ribeiro. Dead Water

Through this exhibition, Marilene Ribeiro immerses herself in the lights and shadows of hydroelectric power from the standpoint of the inhabitants of the Brazilian areas affected by these large infrastructure works. Dead Water flows between two rivers, the river of the tangible and the river of the intangible—beauty, identity, memory, the transcendent—. Both rivers converge within the space of this work: the zone of the encounter, the territory where exchanges between the subjects and the photographer happen. The project comprises a series of portraits that were ‘co-created’ by the photographer and the subjects in the stories recounted in the show, as well as a compilation of images of their intangible losses caused by these hydropower schemes.
