Here in the Bathroom, drawing inspiration from the focus on Autism Spectrum Disorder, artist and autistic individual Aline Provensi brings us an interactive experience that sharpens the senses of touch, vision, and hearing. This is achieved through a multitude of experiences conveyed through the language of comics. The joy of water and bathing is associated with potential sensory discomforts that unfold in both the imaginary and sensory realms. This allows us to explore the relationship between the float and the toilet, the oar and the toothbrush, the bathtub and the representation of a boat, or even the sink simulating a lighthouse. Here, the floor and the walls blend as living elements like waves and the swaying of water, or the droplets that move, presenting their symphony of sounds. In this space, you can touch and interact with some exhibition objects, registering in your imagination the sensations that are always intense in the bathroom environment.

Brain Box

The brain box, represented by artist Daniélle Carazzai, is your moment to learn about your capabilities, and how people with autism spectrum perceive themselves, understanding each part of this sensitive and enchanting universe, which reveals subtleties to us and sharpens our curiosity . This space is meant to be affective, for you to enjoy the fun through challenges and games and also learn from the research, offering you opportunities to sharpen your curiosity and challenge you to new knowledge, so that your neurons connect in the same intensity with which children capture and present to us the way they see, process and think about the world around them. But everything goes through your body and its sensations, responsible for all the typical and atypical connections of each of us. Therefore, sharpen your senses and allow yourself to enjoy the smallest stimuli that your brain allows you to choose, in the same way that your brain is capable of capturing the world around you and allows you to connect with the unique experience, which brings us respect. to individuality and neurodivergence, as a way of perceiving the world around us. This unique form reveals to us that there are ways to diagnose, to develop, and that there are important scientific data and many peculiarities in this construction.


In the kitchen, artist Bruno Romã harvested creative insights from workshops with neurotypical and atypical children who are part of the Autism Spectrum Disorder. He characterizes sensitive details of this lively space in a home that enhances our senses. The environment celebrates sensory integration in every detail, every smell, every food, and sound that grabs our attention. It seems like the stove, pots, and pantry jars have eyes and are eager to see you, representing the various ways of seeing the world. What’s inside the pots, the steam from the boiling food, the scent of the stew, and what else? The stove door and the shelves seem like mouths; do you see that? There might be an atomic cockroach in the jar, cooked states, and what will be served next? And the spoons, are they all the same, systematically organizing so many daydreams side by side? And the sink? The only place that is “disorganized” in the kitchen expresses the constant deconstruction and reconstruction of values and attitudes or even the fear and doubt that make one reflect on the process of dismantling and reorganizing ideas, reflected in the water flowing from the tap to the drain. And what if it comes back from bottom to top? Chaos of mess or balance? Imagine the details of each food as new forms and possibilities, a cheese lamp, a sandwich pillow, representing sensations and preferences for certain foods. And these cookie jars, shaped like Legos, are they for eating or playing?


In the bedroom, artist Marcela Callado sought to portray the imaginative world of childhood dreams shared by the project’s participating children and what captures their glare during moments of relaxation or imagination. The bedroom serves as the antechamber of dreams, where these three-dimensional representations seek to bring to life the dreams of neurotypical and atypical children within the Autism Spectrum Disorder in a magical environment filled with movement, colors, and shapes. This charmed realm materializes fantastical creatures such as dragons and unicorns that come to life, eager to engage in conversation. The neutral tones and shapes of the environment serve to calm and attract, akin to a dream or soft white clouds, invaded by these colossal creatures, transforming it into either a dreamlike wonderland or a nightmarish reality. The literal drawings portrayed in photo frames and paintings are integral to the children’s creation, constituting the essence of this project and serving as the ultimate inspiration for this exhibition.

Dining Room

Here in the dining room, as soon as you step in, behold! Can you taste the popcorn or smell Grandma’s little cake? Metaphor or reality? That’s right! Could the chairs or the furniture in the room be the support for plants? What is built or deconstructed in this environment, with its pieces and utensils? Do furniture have legs and arms, or do plants grow from the chair? And what’s on the table? What are the favorite foods and family references? Chocolate dripping from shining utensils, or the sandwich? Or the cheese bread and the rolled ham. In the cups and the teapot that Grandma has at her home, what can we see? And the dishes and their designs? Literal drawings, in repetition, with firm strokes. Can you imagine what marks the memory and emotions of the delicious little meals or the space that welcomes people at Christmas gatherings, birthdays, and other events? Take note of the walls with their pictures and emotions. Artist Bruna Alcântara translates the subtleties of a dining room and the affective memories of this environment. Reminders of people we care about. Well, it’s time to reminisce.
