Ana Mazzei’s first commission for a public institution in Scotland or the UK is a large-scale site-specific installation. The Brazilian artist presents an unfurling series of rooms, filled with abstracted sculptural forms each pertaining to states of mind, which taken together suggest an open-ended narrative.
At once vivid in colour and offering shifts in perspective and viewpoint, each room could be a twist in a plot or a figment from a dream or memory. There is a deliberate sense of somehow being caught in a choreographed game, with sculptures that take on their own vocabulary of forms, conjuring half-remembered episodes or fragmented mythologies.
