Ana Mazzei
(Left) Hare, 2020
(Right) Woodpecker, 2020

Just like cherries, which always grow in groups, Ana Mazzei’s elegant sculptural works should always come in sets of at least two or three pieces. To separate the Brazilian artist’s freestanding wooden objects would be to deprive them of their narrative strength, to prevent their theatrical potential from unfolding, and to abolish the stories they are about to tell. Here, two creatures from the woods, a woodpecker and a hare, engage in a playful dialogue about the relationship between abstraction and figuration, modernism and postmodernism, subject and object, nature and culture, art and life.
