The Flood, 2017

Installation with watercolor paintings, text, objects and a photograph

The installation was realized at Michel Rein Gallery, Paris/Brussels 2017 and included watercolor paintings, text, objects and a photograph.

A flood devastated a small town in Brazil and Alves traces the man-made actions throughout colonial history until the present which caused this destruction. The cattle-stomped hills deliberately denuded of the rainforest – how can we love this injured land?
