Exhibition on Clarice Lispector’s life opens in Brazil

At the Ukrainian Memorial in Curitiba, an exhibition dedicated to the Brazilian writer of Ukrainian-Jewish descent, Clarice Lispector, has been opened, reported Vitório Sorotiuk, President of the Ukrainian-Brazilian Central Representation (UBCR).

“After more than 103 years since her birth (December 10, 1920) and 46 years since her death (December 9, 1977), writer Clarice Lispector will finally meet the people of the land where she was born – Ukraine, albeit symbolically,” wrote Sorotiuk.

Viewers will be able to see an exhibition of paintings by artist Graça Craidy about the writer’s life. Craidy depicts Lispector in various roles: as an author working at home with a typewriter on her lap and a cigarette in her mouth; as the wife of a diplomat living abroad, torn between married life and the pursuit of autonomy; as a mother of two children; or as the owner of a dog named Ulysses, Sorotiuk writes.

The exhibition has already been seen in Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Niterói, and Florianópolis. “Although Clarice Lispector left us 47 years ago, her prose has become very necessary in this historical moment of existential void and misjudgment of the external and futile,” says the artist of the exhibition.

The exhibition opens on July 5 and will run until the end of the year. Admission is from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
