Les Voisins. That’s what Ricardo Jacinto is bringing to the Hermitage of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, in Lisbon. They’re not exactly his neighbours, they’re the inhabitants of the Marta Pinto Alley where the cultural venue is located. From 18th July until 30th August the Portuguese artist shows the world that surronds him, a world which is strangely familiar to viewers, through fragments, games of visual slopes and sound.
The exhibtion Les Voisins is strongly defined by the space it’s being shown, and finds in the Hermitage its last phase. It all started in April 2006 in the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Paris, an 18th century building. Last year, the “neighbours” were in the space Culturgest, in Oporto, for about six weeks.
Les Voisins’ visitors will act as spectactors in action, and not only for the opening, when a small performance will take place. Works from the first two exhibitions together with others created specifically for the closing of the cycle in the Hermitage will define an unique environment in which interior and exterior meet.
For the Travessa da Ermida (Hermitage Alley) project, Les Voisins will be a strong statement in its approach to a cultural and artistic promotion with special focus on contemporary artists, among which Ricardo Jacinto’s work is one of most interesting and acclaimed in Portugal.
