Smell, the first and most primitive of our senses
by Josely Carvalho
only the memory of a smell
a bird crashes into a window mesmerized by its own reflection
ENTRE OS LENÇÓIS / BETWEEN THE SHEETS
The eternal human necessity to be physically and emotionally sheltered has been a major force in Josely Carvalho’s artwork. In this new visual artist’s book, she directs her focus to the lights and shadows of the negotiation process of intimacies. Her photography is constructed of dramatic scenarios containing an erotic allusion pulsating through life and death, complicity and annihilation.
Entre os Lençóis / Between the Sheets includes fragments of her poetry written in English and Portuguese, over the course of several years.
