Piquetes Anônimos, 2012 / 2017
Since 2012 the artist has been collecting specific objects, used to demarcate and isolate areas in the urban environment in Brazil, which he calls Piquetes Anônimos (Anonymous Pickets); in order to incorporate these objects into the collection this practice involves wandering and encountering the pickets and then arranging a trade with the owner. To date the collection comprises more than 60 pieces.
