The Museu da Casa Brasileira, in partnership with the Casa de Cultura do Sertão do Morro da Garça – MG, presents a sensitive and poetic investigation of country houses and their objects.
The Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution managed by Fundação Padre Anchieta, and ViaQuatro, the concessionaire responsible for the operation and maintenance of Line 4 – Yellow of the Metro, bring passengers a clipping of the MCB’s ‘Casas do Sertão’ project. At Vila Sônia Station, the posters are on display from September 6th to 30th and go to Higienópolis-Mackenzie station in October.
‘Casas do Sertão’ is a project by the Educational Museum of the Casa Brasileira Museum in partnership with the Casa de Cultura do Sertão do Morro da Garça, in Minas Gerais. Started in 2019, it is a sensitive and poetic investigation about country houses and their objects, with the kitchen as the axis. On field trips, artist educators Beth Ziani, Cibele Lucena, Flavia Mielnik and Mariana Galender took notebooks, paints, stamps, fabrics, threads, and with these materials they recorded and shared discoveries and lessons learned, both during visits to residents’ homes and in public offices.
In addition to the posters at the stations, it is possible to check part of this collection on the MCB website, watching the project video and exploring the collection of publications that bring together a poetic and free documentation of the objects found. “To produce it, we established connections between the materials collected and produced in the hinterland of Minas Gerais with those described in the Equipamentos da Casa Brasileira – Usos e Costumes collection, a work conceived by historian Ernani Silva Bruno, with literary texts and musical themes by different authors. By opening the online notebooks on our website, it is possible to dive into this investigation. And we believe that the best way to keep history alive is to be in contact with it, whether by bringing the light of a lamp through stories of the sertão into the subway, expanding the idea of collection and heritage, listening to and shaping new materialities about the knowledge stored in the objects, or connecting territories through narratives that travel with us, transiting between places of origin and destination”, concludes Flavia Mielnik, coordinator of the Museum’s Educational Center and one of the educators responsible for the project.
