New York, NY, July 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Nicole Mouracade has been selected by the “City of the Future” and 2014 World Cup host São Paulo, to adorn the Trianon-MASP metro station serving the Museu de Arte de São Paulo which contains since 1947 the most comprehensive art collection in the Southern Hemisphere.
Mouracade is a sculptor and painter originally from Lebanon with an international career that has spanned over France, Italy, the United States and Brazil, with a nod in 2000 from Paris’s Hôtel Drouot. Her work has come to be identified with modern Brazil, where Mouracade is based, and is part of public collections displayed by national entities such as the São Paulo International Airport, Telefonica Brasil, the Banco Nacional in Rio de Janeiro, among others.
The public installation will count over 5000 concrete pieces depicting her trademark waste barrels in various stages to encapsulate the themes of natural history, time, garbage and decay in a mausoleum-type setting against a highly charged backdrop. It will be part of the 30th Bienal de Sao Paulo in September 2012. The Bienal has featured in its history Picasso, Giacometti and Magritte, among many illustrious artists.
The Trianon-MASP metro is part of the best railway system in the Americas, now undergoing modernization. The metro is located next to the Trianon Park and across from the MASP on Paulista Avenue. Nicole Mouracade is proudly represented by Pharand Art Contemporary in North America.
