Laura Vinci presents at Inhotim Institute her work Máquina do Mundo (2005). The work borrows its title from Carlos Drummond de Andrade's famous poem (1902-1987). In Drummond's image, the machine would be a kind of essence of the metaphysical wisdom of the world, and, like the poem, Laura Vinci's sculpture articulates essence and artifice. As it does its work, the sculpture approaches its end and / or its resumption, in a fragile balance between matter and time. In that way, the artist deals with issues related to time, changes and transformations, all matters that she has approached since the 1980s through sculptures and installations developed.
