The exhibition at Blow de la Barra is called Wish and it is mainly based on works that deal with desire and its necessary insatisfaction. The invite produced for the exhibition is a calendar running from September 2007 to December 2008. It was designed by Pipa according to the same ideas/solutions she used for a similar calendar for the year 2003, which we designed together in 2002 and was distributed as an edition of the journal Planeta Capacete, edited by Helmut Batista, an artist/curator from Rio de Janeiro. The image printed in that one was a mountain, very solid, very permanent. The year would pass, the calendar would age, the paper would turn yellow, but the mountain would be in the same place, almost unchanged. In the new version, the image I am using is an ice cream melting on the pavement; not only because of the melting quality, the impermanence, but also for the evidence that something has just happened, for the guessed frustration of the person who let it fall.
