Brazil in the art spotlight

“The same people who rest in hammocks can, whenever necessary, build a new capital in three years' time.” 

The Brazilian Pavilion at this year’s Venice Biennale brings a homage to Brasilia’s co-architect Lúcio Costa

…and an homage apparently to soap-opera by architect and movie director Marcio Kogan.

Meanwhile in Brazil, Spanish artist Jaume Plensa erects an enormous head out of the Guanabara Bay, part of art project OIR (Other Ideas for Rio).
