(2011- on-going) Smell Flasks / Vidros de Cheiro
by Josely Carvalho
Smell Flasks is a collective on-going artwork, made up of empty perfume bottles to be filled with a memory of a smell. The project started in Viana with 300 bottles and proceed to São Carlos, S.P. where 250 flasks were added. They were numbered, filed and the stories archived inside a dilapidated cabinet file drawer coming out of a wall. It is now an ongoing amalgamated project with almost 600 filled perfume bottles, a collection of smell flasks and the memories from different communities and towns around the world.
