Broca is the constant turn around a focused point, that far from sticking in the same position, it reaches new depth

The works are made by a unique piece of rock crystal.
One is shaped by spiral cuttings, the other only by drilling.

Both are connected with my actual work where I explore the cutting as the main action to transform the material, creating lines, light and space for new connections.

At the same time that they are my answer to the exhibition "broca1:11" where i comment the characteristic of the Grupo Broca:

Remarkable by our constant meetings and long time surrounding a theme in a process that is leading to a maturation of the group.

They also conduct the viewer to a center point but not concentric: meeting area.
There is no unique point, but a convergence of interests that define our group common area, in my perspective.

A particularity is also intentional:
A clean, polished, delineated side conformed by a chaotic, organic, natural verse: also as a metaphor for what gives us form as a group of Brazilian women.

broca 1:11
was an exhibition and lecture to present the Brazilian Group Broca for the first time in Europe
an invitation from PiN Portuguese jewelry association that toke place at SNBA Lisboa (Fine Arts national society)

the exhibition showed the interpretation of the 11 members of the group towards the word "broca" (drill) that names the group, shown as a dictionary entry.

"broca é o giro constante num ponto focado, que longe de permanecer no mesmo lugar, sempre atinge nova profundidade
