'cidade-corpo' ('city-body') is a video and sound installation which shows the documentation of an action:

In São Paulo, I searched for streets that have names of torturers of the dictatorship period in Brazil (1964-1985). I walked from one street to another, recording the audio of this walk. While walking from one street to another I was recalling and explaining the lives of these men.

During the walk I am also stopped by police officers who want to know why I am taking pictures of them.

Once I get to the specific street of the torturer I am looking for, I stick a sticker on it that says 'torturer', so people who cross that street everyday or even live there can be aware of who he was.

The documentation of both the action of sticking and the audio of the walk are overlaid.
