THERE IS ALWAYS A CUP TO SAIL IN
29th Sao Paulo Biennial , Brazil
Curated by Moacir dos Anjos & Agnaldo Farias
2010

El Dorado proposed digging for gold in the state of San Pablo, Brazil. The medium was the message. While the work had a concrete objective in it´s scale and quest, it simultaneously questioned the thin line that separates belief and absurdity, art and reality, exploitation of natural resources and failure. The Sisyphean spirit of the enterprise underlined a quest beyond the limits of condescending the biennial and its visitors.
