MORE/ I already heard it but hardly listened. It happened during the third night.
The walls of the house absorbed the echoes of their beats, as if low pitched sounds were the only ones able to cross lands, foundations and walls.
Now, again, tum tum, tum tum ...
A huge heart’s beat seemed to be buried under the weight of land emitting vibrations,
"a movement signal passing through matter, changing it and engraving in it, briefly, his drawing" (O Som e o sentido. Uma outra história das músicas, Wisnik, José Miguel, Companhia das Letras, São Paulo, 1989) more

MORE/ What is the meaning of vision now, when image has nearly no limits? What is the image now, when the sense of sight intersects lines between perceived reality and reliable experience? The premiere in Barcelona of Claridade, New York, first part of the trilogy Claridade, shows the work of the catalan artist Sabina Simon (Barcelona, 1980) where the presence and absence of the sense of sight converge together to analyze the human behavior and debate on the principles of photography. more

WHERE/ Vila Nova da Cerveira, Portugal
WHEN/ From July 27th to September 14th, 2013 and Saturday 31th August 2013, 4pm for "Performing Face"

MORE/ Forming ends, transforming begins. Face takes part of the initial part of Claridade in New York during 2009. Claridade reflects on the sense of sight in image, playing a performative/photographic praxis where vision is nullified to reach a creative potential.

Interrelating photography with semi-opaque materials during 2013, Face is transferred on liquid paraffin, which after hardened, retains the image on its surface like a black amorphous mirror. In Performing Face, the image is melted by the action of heat through the direct intervention of the artist with a hot air gun. During the performance, the act of destroying reflects on the act of transforming and therefore on creating.
