Orange Fly Contemporary Art, 2018

Orange Fly Contemporary Art is a video installation specially developed to be viewed in the historic vault of the old Citizens Bank building (now occupied by DS4SI). The video is produced by Afro-Brazilian Artist-in-Residence Tiago Gualberto and features a partnership with performance artist Hannibal Hopson of Houston. It was filmed at the SERC (Social Response Emergence Center) which Tiago co-created with Maria Molteni and DS4SI for Project Row Houses in Houston. Orange Fly takes about 5 minutes and brings together images from different contexts and periods, seeking to navigate a non-linear route between the dream and the current social and political moment. The fly with large eyes and disposable life occupies the metaphorical role of the artist.
