September 2nd

"September 2nd" is about the burning of the National Museum of Brazil. As a Brazilian experiencing this tremendous loss here in the states, Zayra found it to be very difficult to raise awareness and empathy. She invited viewers to interact with the piece by ripping the shredded words until the gallery wall was completely bare and surrounded by the remnants of what once there. The writings were sourced from the Museum's website, news articles, and the artist's own personal thoughts.
