Untitled (from the Droguinhas series)

Description:
Droguinha, in Portuguese, refers to a small item of little importance. Made of painstakingly braided and knotted rice paper, Mira Schendel’s Droguinhas are delicate structures that recall nests and spider webs, however as the images of the artist attest, they do not seem to have an evident use other than nonchalant play, a play with them, with time, and with herself. “It was, we might say, the entire temporal problematic of transitiveness […] Another type of experience within this line of ephemeral art.”1 For Schendel, the rice paper is linked to Eastern wisdom, which the artist studied passionately. It is not arbitrary to imagine her seeking ways of accessing a deeper knowledge of herself through simple acts such as the confection and manipulation of these fragile structures, thinking—and re-thinking herself—as through the intimate contact of this material.
