After humanity was put to the test with a pandemic, in which we were forced to slow down and rethink everything and all of existence, it is time to act.

For some, the time to return to "pre-Covid" normality is eagerly awaited; for others, the time has come to create a new reality, to change behaviors and paradigms. It's time to go against ideas and actions, in a "CONTRACYCLE" process. It is time to break with the actions of the past that have harmed our “Common Home” planet Earth.

This year's art installation aims to make visitors reflect on what each of us can change in terms of behavior. What do we want and do we need anyway?

"Contracycle" is composed of 13 art pieces, in a three-kilometer route spread through the village and Mata de Barão de São João.
