artist(s)Sandra Cinto

The movement of water has become increasingly important in the work of Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto, from churning seascapes and rhythmic ocean waves to the graceful cascade of glacial passage. In this immersive installation, she channels the latter to cultivate the contemplation of time and being – employing delicate washes of diluted paint to transform this room into a multi-sensory sanctuary. In this room, Cinto activates the sensory spectrum through guided verbal meditations and soft soundscapes presented via headphones.

Tactility enters the environment via the Library of Love, an exhibition within the installation curated by Cinto that features the work of over 200 artists from around the world. Each was invited to author a book/object which reflects the quality and complexity of love in its many forms. As objects to be touched and stories to shared, this library speaks to Cinto’s larger objective to channel the Portuguese meaning of contemplation – transcending solitary meditation to offer a shared experience where we give, and are gifts to one another. By reflecting upon that which makes us fundamentally human, she offers an implicit remedy to the politics and ideologies that divide.
