2-TIMES  Art
Lygia Pape,
@ Hauser & Wirth

As you can see, 
all is connected.
The artworks does 
not exist as a
finished and
resolved object,
but as something
that is always
present, permanent
within people.

1927-2004 —
Rio de Janeiro,

Reflects Pape’s 
longtime interest
in indigenous
Brazilian peoples
and cultural practices
— most notably that
of anthropophagy,
a ceremonial variant
of cannibalism
practiced by the
Tupinambá people. 

The Tupinambá
devoured their
prisoners, their
enemy, not from
hunger as in
cannibalism, but
to swallow and
assimilate the
spiritual capacities
of the other...
