“We don’t want art to invade the real, rather perhaps we want the real to invade art and, if possible, for the real to invade the real,” says the collective Bijari, headquartered in São Paolo. Now they are ready to invade the streets of Madrid and your head as well, to shift your concept of rubbish, the city and consumption.
Thus, Bijari proposes making a sculpture out of 100% recyclable rubbish, where viewers can rest, climb, play or see the city from a different vantage point.
Founded by architects and artists in 1996, Bijari defines itself as a centre of visual arts and multimedia creation. It has undertaken numerous projects in a variety of supports and technologies, and it usually proposes artistic experiments in a critical vein. Urban interventions, performances, installations, video art and design are a means for them to establish experiences that amplify reality. In recent years, Bijari has participated in exhibitions in Brazil and in the Havana Biennale, the Mercosur Biennale, the Ushuaia Biennale, Qui Vivi?-Russia, Collective Creativity-Germany, Estrecho Dudoso-Costa Rica, Mexico, United States, France and Spain.
