in september 2012, the photographer claudia andajur created an installation on the historical post-office building in vale do anhangabaú, downtown são paulo.
the spaces in the building designed by ramos de azevedo were filled with fragments of a series of 4 photos of yanomami indians, transforming each wall into a giant panel.
as identity of the exhibition we used a square grid, like the one in the building.
the catalogue's cover was screen printed in white over tracing paper, in a way that the grid hid what was behind the back page.
one of the visual themes explored by the series is mirroring, and for that, the whole catalogue is reflected, as if the center were a mirror.
on the first 3 and last 3 pages, we used fragments of the images displayed in the exhibition, however, scrambled in such a way as to deconstruct the images.
after this opening, there are two introductory texts - one by a yanomami and one from claudia herself – and a sequence of images – other phtographs from the same series, that didn't make it into the installation.
on the center of the catalogue, we see a return of the deconstructed images on the grid, but now in a identical arrangement to the installation.
the central pages have two flaps, in a way that the green and blue appear first together...
... and then separate.
after this center/mirror, there is a new sequence of images, which is approximately a mirror of the first.
and, mirroring the introduction, there is a statement made by darcy ribeiro on the yanomami.
the catalogue ends with 3 pages of images scrambled in the grid, and the inside cover reflecting the cover.
for the invitation, we used the scrambled fragments, with the text over the darker squares.
when open, the back of the invitation is a mini poster.
