Remembering the forgotten, “reviving” the dead, reevaluating the “useless”. The use of gold color represents the most sacred of elements, which purifies and gives new life to the almost long lost and forgotten dancers that now have become immortal.
Warm is Good
The monochromatic aspect of these pieces and the nature of its subjects irradiate a particular warmth that is felt inside, rather than outside of the body.
It aims for that place deep within where we are still innocent and fearless, where the soul is free to fly back to that primal state of completeness.
Project Background & Description
The photos featured in this project were taken by the artist’s grandfather, Alfredo Brum, in the span of four decades starting on the 1960’s. The stories behind them are very special as they not only depict him as a family man, but also reveal his “secret” life.
This photographic collection contains a wide variety of subjects and situations, from photos with his wives and kids on vacation at Disneyland and ski trips to the mountains, to whole albums full of pictures from nightclubs and exotic dancers in Brazil, Eastern Europe festivities, parties in Las Vegas, just to mention a few.
