Três Falhos Tristes

Three Sad Flawed

Solo show

Gallery of the College of Fine Arts of the University of Lisbon.

The notion of temporality arises to speculate on continuity, fragmentation and fractality through sculptures, videos and drawings that extend and complement each other. In this constructed spectrum, the works explore the metaphor of hybrid forms that are set in motion, building a representative constellation of signs where doubt, poetry and disputes structure the exhibition horizon.


Such signs were formally elaborated by a disparate and aversive materiality, also precarious, almost not yet fully formed, thus delaying its final constitution as an object, as it tries to be incorporeal, like time, a fundamental theme of the exhibition. 


These sculptures are also characterized by the attempt to evoke certain forms of collective memory, such as the cloud, the smoke and the ghost. On these themes it is possible to draw a historical parallel on how such elements were seen by the moderns. Wisnik (2018) reflects on how the various steam paintings on trains were thought of as ideas of power and the possibilities that would come with the Industrial Revolution through a world that was launching itself into the future, very different from what they reflect today, especially in this exhibition, in which they are understood much more as feelings of ambiguity, emptying, evanescence, suspension and uncertainty.
