Oscar meets Jackson meets Palpatine

I ask my brother if the postcard, sent to my nephews from São Paulo, had arrived.

He writes back –

It’s on the fridge. They liked the curvy building. Jack thought Chancellor Palpatine made it like that.

I ask my brother if my nephew Jack knew that I stayed there.

He writes back –

He knew, I told him. He inquired whether you were now “on the dark side”. I reassured him that you continued to follow the ways of the force. He smiled and said “good”.

Lunch Break

Inside. On the opening day of the 29th Bienal de São Paulo and artists, curators, gallerists, and critics are manically hopping about from work to work.

Meanwhile.

Outside, in the shade of Oscar Niemeyer’s Pavilhão Ciccillo Matarazzo, construction workers take a lunch time nap. Or is this a performance?
