Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A passion for wood, symmetry, and flexibility. It is impossible not to fall in love with the structure of the “oca” (the name used to designate their homes) under construction in Kaupuna village, at Xingu Indigenous Territory. The lightness that is counterbalanced by force is impressive.

The curvature that the pindaíba trees, thin and long, allows, the solidity found in the cinnamon wood that permeates the earth to bring security and the incredible embira bark that unites everything, eliminating the use of nails. These are all raw materials found in the surroundings, within sight, that have only their uses reviewed, showing that it is always possible to find a new meaning for what is around us and in our life.

It is from based in this way of looking to life that Banco “Embira” is born, in brown cabreúva, with feet that seem fragile, but support the weight of sitting. A detail that draws attention is the mooring made with cotton threads dyed with the bark of the embira’s tree.

Artist Profile

Born: 2015

Hometown: São Paulo

Based in: São Paulo

Born and raised in Brazil, undergraduate in business administration, interior design and furniture design.

Yankatu was born out of my desire to translate the essence of Brazilian identity through art and a unique and timeless design. My work consists of immersions in communities throughout Brazil, studying aspects rooted in culture and manual labor and rescuing lost techniques, reorganizing and helping to improve the activities of these people for the development of a joint work whose focus is the valorization of Brazilian culture and crafts.

Yankatu's pieces have ALMA ("soul", in english), through the relationships established during the projects, and through a notebook that accompanies each piece, where inspirations, immersion images and part of the stories of the artisans involved and their regions are shared. Some pages are left blank, in an invitation for the story to continue being told and passed on from generation to generation.

Transmitting knowledge is an act of preserving our memory.
