Waste land

Top-selling contemporary artist Vik Muniz takes viewers on an emotional journey to the world's largest landfill of the day, Jardim Gramacho. Here the catadores, who number in the thousands, work under the hot sun collecting recyclable materials such as bottles, plastic, and metal to be sold to wholesalers. Muniz invites the catadores to add refuse to his art, photographing the work from overhead. The finished artwork will then be on display in museums and auctions around the world.

  • "Brooklyn based artist Vik Muniz grew up poor in Brazil. This film follows him as he returns to Rio de Janeiro, specifically to Jardim Gramacho, or "Garbage Garden." The world's largest landfill, it receives 7,000 tons daily, an astonishing 70% of all Rio's garbage. "We are not pickers of garbage; we are pickers of recyclable materials," says Tião, a catadore, or trash picker who thinks of himself and his fellows as environmentalists. The pickers have a union, which has built a recycling center, medical clinic, day care and skills-training centers, and community lending library of discarded books for their members. Muniz photographs a number of the pickers, reworks the photographs with garbage, and auctions several in London. Believing in the transformative power of art, Muniz donates the proceeds to the pickers who posed, in recognition of their lives, in honor of the dignity of their work."
  • "Vik Muniz, nato a São Paulo nel 1961, è considerato uno dei più importanti artisti brasiliani contemporanei. Per le sue opere utilizza ogni tipo di materiale, coniugando arte e impegno sociale. Uno dei suoi progetti più complessi è l'installazione di 'Jardim Gramacho', una delle più grandi discariche mondiali. Questa discarica si trova alla periferia di Rio de Janeiro, dove vivono soltanto i poveri e sono in molti a riciclare la spazzatura o a guadagnarsi da vivere così. Tra loro c'è il sognatore Tiao, che tenta di creare una cooperativa; l'intellettuale Zumbi o la giovanissima Suelen che, a 18 anni, ha già due figli piccoli e uno in arrivo, lavora nella discarica da quando ha 7 anni e ne è orgogliosa, perché sa che non finirà mai per la strada."@it
  • "Pendant trois ans, ce documentaire suit l'artiste brésilien Vik Muniz photographiant les chiffonniers de la décharge de Rio de Janeiro... L'artiste fait participer les chiffonniers au travail sur les photos en utilisant les déchets récoltés comme accessoires artistiques... Magnifique réflexion sur le pouvoir de transfiguration de l'art..."
  • "Künstler und Fotograf Vik Muniz, 1961 in São Paulo geboren, gehört zu den wichtigsten brasilianischen Gegenwartskünstlern. Er realisierte ein aufwendiges Projekt zusammen mit den Müllsammlern genannt 'Catadores', Pflücker einer Deponie namens 'Jardim Gramacho' ausserhalb von Rio de Janeiro. Drei Jahre lang begleitete die Filmemacherin Lucy Walker den weltbekannten Künstler bei seiner Arbeit mit den Menschen von 'Jardim Gramacho', die davon leben, den Müll nach Recycling-Material zu durchwühlen. Für die Installation schiesst Muniz Portraits der 'Catadores', die er dann in einem leeren Fabrikgebäude auf den Boden projiziert. Die 'Catadores' erschaffen unter der Anleitung von Muniz ein Kunstwerk, sie legen ihre Bilder mit den gesammelten Stoffen aus, Muniz lichtet diese ab, um die Fotografien in Rio de Janeiro auszustellen und später in London zu versteigern. Der Erlös aus dem Verkauf der Bilder kommt der 'Müllwerkergewerkschaft' zugute. (Quelle: cede.ch)."

  • "Issu d'un quartier pauvre de Sao Paulo, l'artiste conceptuel Vik Muniz est devenu célèbre en réalisant d'étonnants portraits à partir du medium le plus inusité qui soit: les déchets. Soucieux de pousser plus loin son engagement social, Muniz, basé à New York, s'installe pour un an à Rio de Janeiro où, à même le plus vaste dépotoir à ciel ouvert du monde, le Jardim Gramacho, il rassemble sa matière première et ses modèles. Ces derniers, perplexes recycleurs d'une extrême pauvreté, voient leurs vies bouleversées par l'aventure. [(c) Médiafilm]."
  • "Umetnik Vik Muniz je z revnimi ljudmi, ki živijo v favelah Ria de Janeira, pripravil umetniški projekt."
