Description

Marcelo Cidade creates uncanny situations, which appear as if by chance, in

quotidian urban contexts. His process is that of a trickster or playful interventionist,

and his actions produce subtle and poetic transformations in his home city, São

Paulo, and similar public environments. Although his works may appear materially

or conceptually off-handed, they are formally rigorous, politically loaded, and

amplify one’s awareness of the specific thrills of urban space.
