Pamphlet (Schism) is the name for works made from folded and crumpled papers, cast in bronze and painted. This work is part of a constructive operation, of the act of folding the sheet of paper to build geometric structures that echo the work of artists from the Brazilian constructive period (such as Helio Oiticica, Lygia Clark, Willys de Castro), which are then crumpled, revealing the incompatible interaction of the two operations, between construction and destruction, and finally in bronze, perpetuated as an impasse.
