  • Catalogue Essay

    Works from Brazilian New Figuration artist Anna Maria Maiolino's Outros (Others) series were recently highlighted in MOCA’s monographic exhibition as beautifully articulated summations of her oeuvre. Maiolino famously described her inspiration and artistic process as a visceral exploration of and engagement with “food, manual work, drawing, sewing, modelling. Starting with these, and moved by desire and need, I create metaphors of the body: digestion, defecation, the inside and the outside. Also through the body, the political can be manifested”. As an Italian immigrant navigating a politically unstable Brazil, Maiolino became transfixed with the physical manifestation of identity in its most essential and universal form—the human body—and the rituals surrounding its nourishment and progression. Maiolino's Outros are offering tables to our bodily interworking, simultaneously simulating our hollows and organic fillings as well as the daily ceremonial act of consumption.
