Vanishing Acts

Gabriela Vaz-Pinheiro

Cycle "Poetic or Political?", curated by João Baeta

[Free Entrance]

To disappear is to exist. To be an image in the eyes of others. Vanishing acts are the impossible turn of existing in public. A body. A body that is looked at. An image that belongs to others. Fleeting and centrifuge. 

Participation: Rebecca Moradalizadeh
