Mana Bernardes’s Occupation at Casa Ipanema
in 2010 i went for a walk in Ipanema searching people to talk to me about color, sensation, texture, perfume, shape and flavor from this neighborhood. After two months of work, going after imagens with the amazing photographer Mauro Kury trying to translate the people’s impressions like this poet and hawker who told me that the Ipanema flavour was the sun and the sensation was “the woman at the beach”…I developed the Neighborhood Sensorial Map that became an inspirational guide inside the Ipanema Brand and now will be exhibited printed in gigantic paper in some sort of labyrinth. Leftover from the brand will be in a workshop to create objects and we will have the oficial release of the Do Mundo sandal, mine partnership with ipanema brand. This begins june 10th and with a inaugural performance with Alice Caymmi at 8pm. Put in your agendas the address: Casa Ipanema: Garcia D´Avila Street 77.
