The Tunnel is the first collaboration started in 2005 between the Brazilian visual artist César Meneghetti and the poet Carlos Nejar, one of the few Brazilian writers to be nominated for the Literature Nobel prize in 2001. This work is also the first of a new series of intersemiotic videos by Meneghetti. The Tunnel is also a metaphor used very frequently in his work and making the video were a natural consequence. The Tunnel were first presented at the 51 Venice Biennale, Isle of poetry curated by Achille Bonito Oliva and in the tramonto latinoamericano event curated by Antonio Arevalo.
