Living on the edge

11 Jul

You know what, I would actually consider doing this..

Two brothers in Brazil are literally living on the outside of a building in Rio’s Old Center and all in the name of art. Since May, twenty-seven-year-old Tiago Primo and his twenty-year-old brother Gabriel, have been sleeping, working and eating on the side of a building 33 feet (10 meters) up in the air for twelve hours every day.  They plan to continue this display until August.

    It’s a gallery in Rio de Janeiro called “A Gentil Carioca” I was there about six months ago. The windows on the right are the gallery and they have revolving projects on the wall. See http://www.agentilcarioca.com.br/Eventos_en/parede.html

    Hum.. for the love of art… Waht does that really mean? I don’t know. But this is actually quite a performance, even if i think it’s more a physical one.
