A felled cypress found in nature provided 64 wood cuttings, on which were carved the hexagrams from the I Ching, Book of Changes. The dialogue between the art and the raw material, between the raw material and the art, is the focus of the work. Each segment of cypress becomes a work of art once exhibited, and generates a singular woodcut, which in turn is both a work of art in itself and the raw material for its digital reproductions. The complete Suite brings together 64 singular woodcuts, and 64 cypresses.
Indica is located at Rua Visconde de Pirajá 82, Ipanema.
