'Canícula' | Joachim Luxo
Cycle: "The Politics of Images" curated by João Baeta

The three images of this exhibition in the Mupi Gallery were isolated and taken from a larger project also entitled Canícula. As a backlit triptych, puts us several issues associated with vacation leisure these days. In them, leisure arises as a possibility of rest, of interruption of a labor activity, of the right to laziness, accompanied by an apparent lightness and detachment, or affirmation of the paradoxical utility of dolce far niente. But in parallel they are images of appearance, as a veil that in its human dimension covers up various micro narratives and fictions. Often, they are alienated “realities” that embrace dramas and tragedies as a result of overproduction and global consumerism.
