Ka'até is Tupi-Guarani word for the deep forest, which is far away from the territory of men: is the mythical place where gods and spirits live, where known paths are interrupted and that is not penetrated.
Kiti means cut with a sharp instrument, and thus by the hand of man, by technology.
As in a Hegelian interpretation, to the indigenous tribes of Brazil the Ka'aeté, the deep jungle, is also a place without history, where things are not formed and where animals can metamorphose.
Kiti Ka'aeté is the generic title of a series of works that derive their form of the cuts in an original collage, made in turn by following forms and patterns of Guaraní indians' abstract arts.
This set includes, already made or still in project, collages, photographs, slide shows, films on collages, sculptures and a 16mm film, that recombine the pieces of the precedent works in the next.
The project implies the circulation and exchange as forms, ideas and language from one work to the other, involving a change of status and an experiment in a new medium, environment and context, seeking thelimits on the development of an idea.
