"In Joana Vasconcelos' site-specific project, Contamination, we witness the invasion of the architectural space, the Octógono da Pinacoteca de Sao Paulo, Brazil, by a colourful, deformed and tentacular textile body. Thus, the Octógono's space is activated by a process of 'invasion'/'contamination' of its architectural elements. Set on the floor, this strange body, a chimerical synthesis of the artist's previous productions, grows and invades the walls and interspaces, turning space into an object of perception; epidermal contamination that interferes with the experience of the Place felt by the observer" (excerpt of the text by Lúcio Moura - Lisbon, 28th January 2008.).

The project Contamination has been produced in the scope of the protocol celebrated between the Direcção Geral das Artes / Ministério da Cultura Português and the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo.

Octógono Contemporary Art Project

Begun in 2003, with an installation by Mario Merz, the Octógono Contemporary Art Project aims at being, within the framework of the museum's activities, a space for systematic debate on the production and the ideas that make contemporaneity conform in the visual arts. With this in view, reinterpretations of works which are important for the knowledge and the diffusion of contemporary art are displayed, as well as new works purposely produced for the space.
