I am a crystal goblet cast into the sea | 2009 (VIDEO)



This video presents some moments from the breaking a crystal glass and goblet collection that I amassed over 20 years. Linked to very personal and intimate matters, this act represented a moment of rupture and transformation in my life.

The breaking of the glasses took place during the mounting of the exhibition “Memórias heterogêneas,” at the Castelinho do Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro, in 2004.
