Mello + Landini is a creative duo formed by Janaina Mello Landini and Daniele Francesco Landini, specialized in creating rope sculptures.
Janaina Mello Landini graduated in Architecture in 1999 and studied Fine Arts at the Federal University of Minas Gerais.
The work of the artist adds his knowledge of architecture, physics and mathematics and his remark about the weather, to plot their worldview. His works transiting through different scales – the object to public space – and seek to offer the viewer a place of rhythmic relationships, exploring the different facets of our own personal development.
He has shown his work in exhibitions and salons in São Paulo, Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Belem and Paraty and Europe, such as Italy and France, and many other countries.

For over five years they continued the ‘ciclotrama’ series. The rope-based, site specific installations are physical maps displaying an assortment of paths, movements, and fluxes. The social cartography of individual networks show the infinite interconnectedness and interdependence of personal trajectories throughout a system, society, and the world as a whole. The unwoven strands bring about images of plant roots, inner workings of the body and mind, and others.
They are represented by Zipper Gallery in Brazil.
