[ Daily Focus: Isaac Julien at UNTITLED, Art Miami Beach 2019 ]
This photograph is taken at the abandoned restaurant of Coaty on the Ladeira da Misericordia, and shows a performance by the young Salvadoran actor Diego Pinheiro. Coaty was built as part of Ladeira da Misericórdia, another connection place between downtown and uptown Salvador in the past. The slope was renovated by Bo Bardi to host popular housing as well as a community restaurant. From a ruin to a reconstructed ruin, this project never reached its objective. The houses were never officially inhabited and the community restaurant never opened. An important example of how public space is treated in Brazil, the area is now closed to the public and is managed by the military police.
