Sinédoque

Synecdoche is a figure of speech in which the part represents the whole or the whole represents the part. The exhibition with the same name gathers works based on photography, that cross other disciplines of the visual arts. Photography is actually the intersection point between the paths of the three authors, whose shared interest in abstraction and in exploring techniques often set apart […]

No Breu

Sandra Lourenço On the photography that commits us   Sandra Lourenço’s work has a lot to do with the world of cinema. The images are ostensibly cinematographic, looking like small frames from a movie we might have seen. They refer to an action, to a narrative, to a character. And the way Sandra Lourenço illuminates these nocturnal spots, the focus on the trees […]

Multimedia Expanded

Multidermis Expanded, proposes to create an extra-sensorial dialogue, having the skin as a medium, vehicle and sensitive space for landscapes and universes in transformation and impermanent mutability. It seeks to utilize its natural features to establish idiossyncratic mappings, with ideas, objects and premisses which are simoutanously tactile and remote. This proposition in expansion connects Multidermis, Inês Pereira’s project on the Ophiocordyceps unilateralis and […]

Rub` Al-Khali (Empty Quarter)

In 2015 I was invited by the curator Marie Loffreda to develop a photographic project on Dubai. The aim was to build a visual memory, recording everyday situations, placing a photographic image between documentary and poetry, resulting in an eclectic mix of individuals, landscapes and interiors. I had the opportunity to come back to the United Arab Emirates in 2018, to come closer and get a deeper immersion on the uses and costumes of the arab people. Visually what has fascinated me the most for a dream side, a plastic and not real side that is confused with a reality. I was particularly interested in photographing the sites, the Emirati and trying to touch a way they live their intimacy. I could not stay the same as this region evolved in so few years thanks to oil and commerce, sprouting from the sands of the Arabian Desert

SEDUÇÃO MÚTUA

Journey With No Route

@João Pedro Marnoto Journey With No Route is a work that comes from an inner need of research, addressing the representation of the human experience upon a reflection on contemporaneity. An intimate exercise of awareness, where instinct reflects upon reason and vice-versa, in moments that intersect interior and exterior realities. The loneliness and alienation before the multitude. The emptiness urging the search for […]

Give Way

@Francisco Varela Esta é a história de uma viagem que, como todas, é também interior. O programa da viagem tinha como fito angariar trabalho, enquanto que a prática fotográfica, diarística, foi uma deriva interrogativa, onde a par de alguma desorientação se tentou reencontrar novos sentidos vivenciais e estéticos, a enunciar sobre esta experiência de fim incerto. É afinal, de um território emocional sobre […]
