ABOUT THE WORK

Kaloan developed Da Série Entidades Temporárias during the artist in residence programme award TAC Terra Una in 2013. The residency is located in the countryside of Brazil, about 200km from Rio de Janeiro in Minas Gerais, Liberdade City. Minas Gerais was formed mainly by colonists, who from 1693 began searching for veins of gold, gemstones and later diamonds. This exploitation helped to boost occupation of inner lands and led to the foundation of several new villages. In 1697 the Portuguese abused enslaved African labourers to build the Estrada Real – the royal road – to connect Rio de Janeiro with the key mining areas of the region. During the 18th century the mining exploration was strongly controlled by the Portuguese Crown.

Based on his research into the tradition of African masquerade, Kaloan investigated the flora and fauna of the region, collecting and organising the material found, analysing different colours, textures and shapes, researching nuances and differences between leaves, flowers, twigs, seeds, land, bark, fruits, stones and things found.
His triptych centres on the idea of an entity, something that evokes an unknown native culture. Based on his research, he carefully constructs images of beings and natural entities, through the creation of ephemeral garments made out of perishable organic materials.

BIOGRAPHY

Kaloan Meenochite was born in 1983 in São Carlos, Brazil. He studied Visual Arts at the Centro Universitário Belas Artes de São Paulo, and his work has since crossed multiple media within art, including drawing, installation, photo and performance art. He is a founding member of Organismo Piknik, an art group that brings together people in experimental actions in the field of art and social relations, mainly performing collaborative interventions in public spaces.

Kaloan is also part of the
Voodoohop collective, a hedonistic group who changed the party scene of São Paulo, and a founding member of Keroøàcidu Suäväk, a sound and performance project working with experimentation of altered states of consciousness, rituals, experimental music, projections and trance. In 2012 he performed with Keroøàcidu Suäväk at the end of the 30th Bienal de São Paulo, and in 2013 Kaloan won the TAC Terra UNA prize.
