The expo is a collaboration between THE CONSTANT NOW, and Please Add Color.
Curators: Kevin Kotahunyi and Magali Elali.
THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT - PT2 takes place in November 2021.
The egg has always held a particular symbolic significance in the work of Carolina Maciel de França (°1986, Recife, BRA), who started collecting eggshells in 2017. Because it is a visual shorthand for new life and un-hatched potential, and many legends, cultures, and stories refer to it, the author and performer decided to use them in an in situ installation. With "Nyota" - Swahili and Ngala for "star(s)" - de França encourages her audience to converse with the world's most universal and polysemiotic symbol.
