Cycle "Poetic or Political?", curatorship by João Baeta
"Plants tend to grow towards the sky. This movement is nothing but an exhausted and desperate orgasrm of vulgarity and stupidity, as it can simply be observed and confirmed when one stares its eyes. Those tiny voided and frighted greyed eyes.
Never the less and just like plants, objects tend to be merely products of a stupid or an angry thought. Really they are nothing but this. Objects constituted as monument/sentiment that sidesteps the debt of a metaphorical omni-controlled cliché. Some objects even believe that oral poetry is more eternal than what precedes its origin. So here we stand in a monochromatic limbo of corporal minimalism deeply rooted in a long-suffering agony of a metaphor in de-composition.
In fact, we could be wrongly driven by the ideia that the present show avoids all this - by the use of a revolutionary pointillism poorly dressed as an interactive and inter-disciplinary mixing of fainted colors and gutural sounds of an ancient lost tribe of Papua New Guine - but the testicular evidence exploits the ethereal reflection of its own contradictions.
As an audience, we learn more than we ever thought possible about how the exotic inebriated light of the late gothic can be referenced in a post-specular event that merges faith within furniture street design."
