And again you’re very welcome to join us!

This exhibition is the result of a rich and inspiring exchange with fellow artist and poet Alice Hsieh.

We have met during a book club in early 2015 and since then we have been exchanging ideas about poetry and art, and giving each other feedback.

During this period, Alice wrote a series of poems, published in a bilingual (English-Portuguese) format, which have been developed into video and Spoken Word performances, while I have been working on a series of texts and interactive art installations, some of them already known to some of you.

We look forward to having you with us to celebrate our passion for books, words and poetry!

Ibero-American Arts Awards exhibition

15 Nov

My interactive sound sculpture “Through the Sky” was of the 30 shortlisted “Utopian” artworks selected to the Ibero-American Arts Awards exhibition,  opening tonight at the Embassy of Brazil London.

“You stand in front of the sculpture, play the sound, close your eyes, and let yourself travel that just exist in you, somewhere, where all your dreams are, and where you feel free.”

Inspired by the power of believe in something you cannot see or explain, but that you can feel, mystical – a concept so present in Ibero-American culture and its rituals-, the sculpture “Through the sky” plays with the idea of ascension.

A series of artefacts, with irregular shapes and heights, in white and blue, as in my view are how clouds are – or the idea of it the concept of something rising through the pots, I recorded the sound of wind, adding a dramaticity to it, and inviting you, the viewer-participant to play it, becoming part of the installation, to ascend to a place that doesn’t exist. Or that just exist in your mind. A place where you go to let go of things you don’t need/ want anymore, that bothers you, somehow a healing experience in the search of freedom.

The work was created following my research on the observation of the environment around me and the idea of slowing down; been able to stop, even for a few seconds, and relax… dream with a new future. The result is the sculpture, which is my interpretation of it, but the work can have different meanings and interpretations depending on each individual’s background and experience.

No Regrets @ Conscientia: Latin America / Art at Lloyds

10 Jun

The performance installation “No regrets” is back. This time it was presented today at the preview of the exhibition Conscientia: Latin America Counciousness, that runs until the 10th of Sepetember, at the LLoyds Club, in London.

Any regrets? Regrets are to be forgotten. In this performance the artist invites visitors-participants to write down their regrets and place them inside matchboxes. After the performance, the regrets will be burned in a symbolic ritual that represents the liberation of any remorses, bringing a feeling of peace and freedom.

The action will be filmed, transforming the work into a video-installation.
