Overview

From his plastic paintings to performances, collaborations and reconfigured found objects, Jarbas' direct physical interaction with his diverse materials in multiple contexts explores the intrinsic relationship between instinct and reason, the body and the mind, the individual and/in society.

- Veronica Cordeiro, From live microchips to talking corpses, 2001

Lives and works in Maricá - Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian artist, moves ideas, reframes objects, idealizes magic and expands, based on his works, the concept of possible utopias. His creative process permeates a reconfiguration of objects and aesthetic experiences, giving them a new meaning and movement, always around a critical tone.

Biography

Lives and works in Maricá - Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian artist, moves ideas, reframes objects, idealizes magic and expands, based on his works, the concept of possible utopias. His creative process permeates a reconfiguration of objects and aesthetic experiences, giving them a new meaning and movement, always around a critical tone. His sculptures and interactive paintings make a balanced fusion between time, space and practical and ideological circumstances such as collective participation, sociability for public spaces and shared uses of the city. The artist uses this power to work and stretch plasticity to maximum tensions, his work “Cicloviaérea”.

 

In 2020, he hold his third individual exhibition at A Gentil Carioca. In 2019 he took part in the exhibition "Samba in the Dark", at the Anton Kern gallery, in NY, "Brazil! Foco on na Arte Contemporânea Brasileira" at the Museo Ettore Fico, in Turin, Italy and " O que não é floresta é prisão política" in the Occupation 9 de Julho from Movimento dos Sem Teto do Centro (MSTC) in São Paulo. His works were also showed at the III Bienal de Gaia, in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal. In 2018, during the exhibition "Via Aérea" he performed an artistic intervention in the external courtyard of Sesc Belenzinho, in São Paulo. In 2017 he presented the solo shows “XXXY”, at the gallery A Gentil Carioca in Rio de Janeiro, “Circulovisão” at the gallery Luisa Strina, in São Paulo and “e a u”, at the CRAC Alsace, Altkirch, in France. In 2016 showed the solos “SOLTO”, at the SESC Nova Iguaçu, “E de novo montanha, rio, mar, selva, floresta”, at the SESC Palladium, Rio de Janeiro and the “Solo Presentation”, at gallery A Gentil Carioca during Art Basel, in Switzerland.
