People are constantly exposed to a convergence of spaces in the cities. Reference points are created from shifts in the route; here, the lines in Alê Souto's work appear. He strolls through the neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro's suburbia that become expeditions. His drawings include the turning points that drive the rhythm of the city's lifestyle. The red lines on the cardboard boxes are like lyrics of a survival song. An occasional shelter, a functional unit for the viewer that may need to find a parallel for his unrest. These urban maps transfer confusion; far away from being guides, they are links that unite art with the path we decide to take.
