Built with Indexhibit

Garagem Automática, 2013 – 2016 Entre os anos de 1960 e 1980 trinta e quatro edifícios garagem automatizados foram construídos no entorno da região Central de São Paulo. Edificios funcionais de até 32 pisos e capacidade para armazenar 800 veículos. Esses monolítos de concreto, persistem hoje como símbolos de uma cidade que por décadas privilegiou o carro como principal meio de transporte. Nessa série de fotografias, vídeos e áudio olho para o interior desses edifícios, busco o encontro com esse corpo mecânico, a máquina de guardar máquinas. Um espaço paralelo e imaginado, povoado pelos rastros do tempo, do uso e das máquinas que movimentam esse corpo. _ For the last 8 years I have been photographing around São Paulo’s downtown district focusing on its built environment. This body of work was produced around 2013-2016. Between the 1960s and 1980s thirty-four mechanical garage buildings where built in São Paulo’s downtown district as a solution for the cities lack of parking space due to the growing use of automobiles. Once a symbol of progress these buildings are now seen as vivid relics of a failed urban development. Using photographs, video and audio extracts I examine the interior spaces that make up these constructions. I search for an encounter with this mechanical body and its atmosphere, a possibility to navigate these parallel chambers inhabited by the traces of time and use.
