The presented work while relating to the present bears an echo from the past. Dona Carninha and her family can trace their ancestry back to the first slaves brought to the estate of Colonel Paulinhos, a powerful landlord in the hinterlands of the state of Pernambuco. Exploring the idea of how the past is still present and influencing today's social reality in the Northeast of Brazil, the exhibit invites the viewer to slow down, take a moment to enter the presented reality.
