Giselle Beiguelman discusses her show “Quanto pesa uma nuvem?” (How heavy is a cloud?), held in the wake of her trip to Poland – the country of her family, which relocated to Brazil after World War I. The artist comments on the challenge of creating an exhibition that’s respectful of pain, one that operates in a sphere of delicateness and does not echo a history of trauma, in spite of the confrontation with a place that harbors histories and narratives of exclusion.
