Red Body

Positioned in front of the Justice monument, located at Tiradentes Square, Panmela paints her body with red spray and then removes all the impregnated paint by rubbing herself. 

The performance composed the collective show resulting from the artistic residence of the LAVRA collective - composed by Alice Ferraro, Carine Caz, Dinah Oliveira, Jéssica Guia and Jessica Kloosterman - at the Hélio Oiticica Municipal Art Center, which proposed a dialogue with the Experimental Area that took place at the Rio Museum of Modern Art in the 1970s, mapping and occupying Praça Tiradentes with more than 50 artists from the city of Rio de Janeiro who work with performance. The space occupation event was held on March 30, 2019, the eve of the anniversary of the military coup of 64, under the thematic provocation of the body as political territory.
