Marcia Beatriz Granero – Minada, 2:20, 2015


Jaque Jolene makes a secret visit to unravel the cultural mystery contained in the unfinished modern architecture of the 70s. Minada was the last document before the closure of the activities of the Paço das Artes de São Paulo in that space. After more than 20 years space is now a vaccine industry. A trailer for a movie that doesn’t exist!


Márcia Beatriz Granero is a Brazilian artist and independent producer currently based in São Paulo. Her projects explore the creation of the character, Jaque Jolene, recorded in videos and photographs. Jaque is the centre of the work, a fictional autobiographical entity who from time to time inhabits Márcia Beatriz Granero’s body. The artist collaborates with her creation in performative actions as they visit historic buildings where cultural institutions are established. These performances result in videos, photographs and installations. In them, cinematic language is explored not in order to undermine the fallacies of cinematic constructions but as a device for investigation and presentation of their surroundings.
