Project developed in partnership with Virgílio de Barros, proposing a dialogue between intrinsically linked realities: the reality experienced on a global scale since the appearance of the pandemic caused by COVID-19 and the current situation of the district of São Sebastião das Águas Claras, better known as Macacos , which has lived, since 2018, under the constant threat of the rupture of the B3 and B4 dams of the mining company Vale S/A and the panic caused by the so-called invisible mud. 


In 2019 we photographed the city of Macacos with a Canon demi ee17 camera, a half frame, which divides a frame in two, creating a wall between the two images, in dialogue with the wall built by the company Vale in the city to contain the mud that threatens contaminate the waters of the capital of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte. In the images, we can see the traffic signs installed throughout the city indicating the "escape routes", which indicate where the population must flee in less than 10 minutes to escape the mud, after the siren sounds.


2020: This work received a DAC/PRAE grant from UFMG, which led to the creation of a Folhetim.
