Not flesh color, light pink! Lá Tinha Project
UIVO is a concerted intervention that promotes cohesion, inclusion and active citizenship, using artistic practices to facilitate interpersonal relations and encourage co-responsibility and empathy. In collaboration with Project Lá Tinha, the “Flesh Color?!” workshop was held in a multicultural school, where prejudices associated with races, ethnic groups and cultures were reflected upon with the intention of deconstructing them. On this occasion, the children, in addition to painting their self-portrait, played at identifying the colors in Humanae’s pictures with the cards that the teacher prepared by relating food to its color.
Students no longer say: flesh coloured pencil, and if they forget, rectify: not flesh coloured, light pink
Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion. It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
