Approach and works on display

Raid das moças : a sorte é cega (2015)
The video Raid das moças: a sorte é cega  (La poétique de la marche: la chance est aveugle) is the trace of a series of performances made by the artist Ieda Oliveira, in 2015. The purpose was to bring art and entertainment to gathering places such as fairs or public squares in the city of Salvador. The artist recreates a large-scale card for the “Raid das Moças” raffle, a popular game in which passers-by participate free of charge for a chance to win basic necessities donated by the artist. The raffles represented important moments of festivities and celebrations in the artist’s childhood, lived in the Recôncavo da Bahia. This ritual, present in popular culture, transmitted from generation to generation and linked to a survival effort, is however a manifestation of life, celebration and play.
