Cut-up barcodes, words, nametags, parcel tape, packaging materials and band aids: these are some of the materials Brazilian artist Marcelo de Melo has worked with in his series ‘Bag Tag Loop’.

Closely related to de Melo’s previous work in mosaic, what we see here are playful, seemingly naïve collages, with repeated and combined patterns, shapes and colors.

‘Bag Tag Loop’ works on multiple, contesting levels: as playful collage, as invitations to think beyond the materials’ parameters, but also, and not in the least, to ponder the vulnerability of each and every lived human life.
