INTERATIVOS 2018 | Aug – Dec

1 Jul

INTERATIVOS 2018 | Programme August to December

(For more info & RSVP, please visit: http://www.meetup.com/INTERATIVOS/)

–       During this semester we’ll focus on women artists, often making a parallel with Latin America.

–       At Interativos we start the workshop talking about an artist/ artist movement & reading poems to engage on nice conversations and to get inspired to do the creative work. Please don’t expect a lecture! It’s all very informal and in a friendly environment.

–       We propose an activity, but we also like the idea of a free space, so feel free to work on your own ideas or to bring something you’re already working on.

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!

5pm – 8pm Preview & book launch

Thanks to everyone who joined INTERATIVOS creative workshop and exchange and to The Create Place at St Margaret’s House for hosting us. I had a blast!
Interesting chats, new friends and collaborations. What a pleasant time with lovely people, nice snacks and lots of cups of tea. Below, a few shots of the day and some of our creations.

If you want to come back or if you missed it, add the new dates to your diary: in 2017 we’ll be at The Create Place (29 Old Ford Road E2) every first Saturday of the month, from 11:00-15:00, starting on the 7th of January.

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.
