For the Biennale de Lyon, Brazilian artist Paulo Nazareth decided to retrace the slave route. He ran theentire distance, several thousand kilometres, from Johannesburg to Lyon. from day to day he created an artwork as an account of his journey: “Paintingmy skin with blue-black Genipa juice like a blackman before going to Africa”. Nazareth combines the talents of an artist, a street entertainer, a poet andan anthropologist. He accomplishes simple, ordinaryacts, as he discovers them through meeting people,and they have a profound transformative effect on hisrelationship to time, to narratives and beliefs. When he undertook his “journey”, he had no idea what to“expect”, any more than he knew what was going tohappen. Here he recounts the story of this intentional improvisation.With the support of the Maison de l’Amérique Latine en Rhône-Alpes.
