“Linear time is a western invention; time is not linear, it is a marvellous entanglement where, at any moment, points can be chosen and solutions invented, without beginning or end.” – Lina Bo Bardi

This trailer for the multiple screen installation and photographic series A Marvellous Entanglement (2019) features a collection of Brazilian-Italian artist Lina Bo Bardi’s most iconic buildings, offering a meditation on the work and legacy of the visionary modernist architect and designer (1914–1992).

Historical reparation through visual poetry

British artist Isaac Julien responds to Bo Bardi’s ideas through an open-ended reflection on three buildings: São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP), SESC Pompeia and in the Teatro Oficina, widely regarded as landmarks of Brazilian modernism, and representative of her ground-breaking vision. 


“Lina Bo Bardi – A Marvellous Entanglement looks at historical reparation through visual poetry, moved by the breadth and power of Bo Bardi’s work, and a profound belief that her legacy has yet to be fully acknowledged.” – Isaac Julien Still Taken from “A Marvellous Entanglement” – Isaac Julien (2020)   Still Taken from A Marvellous Entanglement – Isaac Julien (2020) | © Isaac Julien Victoria Miro Gallery Brochure
