Anna Boghiguian: Conversations on Limits and Unlimits

Mendes Wood DM / São Paulo / Art

“She can have a micro perspective, and then a macro, as well. She’s thinking not just globally, but across history.” This is what curator Jennifer Bell said of Anna Boghiguian, the nomadic, 72-year-old artist. Painted cutouts from the world of Clarice Lispector’s novels—cockroaches, disfigured cats and pigs—are precariously stacked on wooden ledges. On the wall, metal slats channel Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse in purples and greens. Somehow, these seemingly random moments and figures converge to tell a story about existence, and co-existence.– E.C
