Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

How is a piece born? Where does inspiration come from? The idea of this piece is to show that nothing is by chance, every detail of a Yankatu work has a raison d’être and that it is born from a construction made by many hands, many stories, many emotions. It is the essence of a feeling, translated into something tangible. It has soul.

The “Oca” Closet welcomes you to Xingu, its traditions, its people. A people that welcomed me and liked the idea of us working together to bring to life pieces that respect their knowledge and value their history. Yaritsu Waura, Kayanaku e Kuyawalu Aweti, Pakuiura, Paipualu, Wayuni e Kuyawalu Mehinako took turns weaving the mat that was incorporated into this piece. They used cotton threads dyed by Mattricaria, from Brasilia, with bark and leaves from trees harvested by Kulilkyrda on the outskirts of the village, creating a Xingu’s color chart. All of that under Maria Fernanda’s attention and coordination so that when it arrives in Sao Paulo she will be able to change the way we used to see it, giving it a privileged place.

It’s a love story and a real story, showing us that it is possible to innovate and maintain tradition at the same time, that it is possible to add without losing the identities of the parties, that we can overcome challenges together and use technology to our advantage to bridge distances when it is not possible to be together.

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.
