Cry me a river
Marcos Chaves is one the most famous conceptualist artists of his country, Brazil. Although he works with a variety of mediums, he is especially passionate about ready-mades and using Duchampian concepts to express himself.
Cry me a river is not ready-made, but a video art with music that depicts a ready-made. The intertextuality of the work is an ode to the power of different disciplines of art. Cry me a river presents the beauty of crying. It blends suffering and serenity, just as it blends digital and physical reality.
