Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain (Caxias do Sul, Brazil) began exhibiting in 2001. Their work can be related to several art trends that gave life to Brazilian modernist avant-garde movements, such as concrete art, the visual poetry of the Noigandres group or digital art. At a time when many aspects of these movements are part of everyday life, making reference to them has a playful, if not ironic, dimension derived from the ambiguity created by those works. Here, language seems to have taken over, because the works are built on the voluntarily incorrect use of the coding and decoding work that characterizes the flow of information in contemporary society. It is in these deviations of the incorrect that we find the infinite work that language carries out in building up and breaking down the world and, through this process, language is once again allowed access to experimentation.
