corpo elétrico - reveręncia


Antonio Obá (b. 1983, Ceilandia) investigates the influence and contradictions within the cultural construction of Brazil, giving rise to an act of resistance and reflection on the idea of national identity. Obá utilizes icons present in Brazilian culture as allusions to racial and political identity, these iconic historical and sometimes religious subjects are explored within his sculpture, painting, installations, and performance. Obá's own body is central to his research, questioning the eroticization of the black male body and construction of his own identity. Antonio Obá lives and works in Brasília.
