Tonico Lemos Auad

'Carrancas' is inspired by Brazilian boat figureheads, used as symbolic talismans to protect sailors. The various Carrancas situated in the inner and outer harbour are inspired by nature, harnessing tidal currents to hide then reveal, as well as shape the work. 

'Reflected Archaeology', Auad created a special wallpaper, coated with silver ink. During the Triennial visitors were encouraged to draw messages and scratch off the silver to reveal images from processions in northern Brazil and of Folkestone’s own Charivari parade. This was installed at The Grand hotel, The Leas.
