Von Calhau! Nailed Rathorics
Unharias Ratóricas [Nailed Rathorics] is a Von Calhau! exhibition. Unharias is a valise-word that unites Unhas [nails in Portuguese] and Ninharias [knick-knacks]. Unhas [nails] are structures composed by keratin, that can be found on the fingertips of some animals. Ninharias [knick-knacks] are small or insignificant things. Rhatorics is the plural of Rhatoric. Rhatoric is a possible ersatz [substitute] for rhetoric, in which the E of Elusion is replaced by the A of Allusion. Alludes to the image of an animal that also has nails: the Rat.
