In "The night that ate the world" are thought the spectral axes of violence, censorship and witness. The censorship of speech and singing as a symptom of penance. Penance, in the liturgical-juridical context, as confession and atonement of own's sins. In the current political situation in Brazil, there's a compunction of speech, freedom of the press and expression. This artwork reflects the symbolic power of non-word and gesture, in the face of the political totalitarianism that plagues us.
