As of Sept. 17, Zipper Gallery in São Paulo, presents the “First Individual Retrospective”, an exhibition that brings together works accumulated throughout the 10-years of multi-artist Felipe Morozini’s career, one of the funniest and most charismatic characters from São Paulo’s art scene. Highly personal, the exhibition presents a series that has a dialogue with São Paulo, such as the Last Floor Project, a registration and catalog of the the city and its inhabitants, and is always from the same point of view. In this case, the point of view is from his apartment, a very special place and full of life, located on the top floor of an old building in downtown São Paulo. That’s where Felipe lives, works, gathers friends and gets inspired.
There are approximately 50 works – consisting of photographs with collages, paintings, scrapbooks, old decals and stickers interventions – that portray expressions of the city and its people. The exhibition also features videos and objects from the artist’s creative daily life, including toys, porcelain, mirrors, clothes, furniture etc…
Almost a voyeur, Felipe photographs the urban landscape and shows his art in banal gestures in everyday activities such as sunbathing, a series of exercises or even the reflection of a mirror. “The First Individual Retrospective” is worth seeing due to its humorous portrait of daily life in São Paulo.
