Transatlantic Modernism and the Brazilian Avant-Garde
CHAPTER 8: Eating the Self: The Modernist Artist as Cannibal
– Who are we, if not Europeans, if not Indians,
if not a species in between aborigines and Spaniards?
We are what was undone from what we used to be,
without ever becoming what we shall be or might want to be.
Not knowing who we were when we were innocent of them,
unknowing ourselves, even less do we know whom we will become.
– Darcy Ribeiro, Utopia Selvagem
… spontaneous movements
of the voracity of the vacuum
– Caio Meira, ‘Close to the bone’
