ERROR

ERROR é a primeira intervenção produzida pela organização cultural de Aveiro CREARE no edifício do antigo Cine-Teatro Avenida em Aveiro, com o apoio e co-produção do estúdio de artes performativas PerFormas.

Em ERROR as paredes internas do edifício são a ’folha de papel vazia’ de Tiago Margaça, jovem artista plástico de Aveiro. A ausência dos limites apela a um preenchimento arbitrário das paredes com os desenhos a tinta-da-china do artista. Os desenhos propagam-se pelas paredes do edifício numa sensatez do traço natural e espontâneo. O erro acontece por haver um controlo excessivo para que ele não aconteça.

Cádiz has a Second Wind



Second Wind 2005 is an underground installation, invisible from the outside, in which spectators walk through a short tunnel into a pyramid containing the three elements: earth, water and air. Inside the pyramid is a stone stupa, surrounded by a pool full of water. Stupas are the round domes typical of Buddhist architecture. Their shape and position have the effect of bringing the viewer closer to the cosmos. Entering the stupa through a passageway leading into a room full of light and open to the sky, visitors can sit and watch the changing light and the experience the ambivalence of the limits of our perception, where it becomes hard to tell where light ends, and structure begins. In this, as in most of Turrell’s other projects, light not only has texture, it also acquires substance and location.

IN A FEW SHORT DECADES, HUMANITY HAS UPSET THE BALANCE OF THE PLANET, ESTABLISHED BY NEARLY FOUR BILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION. THE PRICE TO PAY IS HIGH, BUT IT’S TOO LATE TO BE A PESSIMIST: HUMANITY HAS BARELY TEN YEARS TO REVERSE THE TREND, BECOME AWARE OF THE FULL EXTENT OF ITS SPOLIATION OF THE EARTH’S RICHES AND CHANGE ITS PATTERNS OF CONSUMPTION.

What is to have an idea in Art?

In its substance an idea is the result of a set of abstract mental operations: it’s an expression that implicitly brings a presence of intention, resulting in a material experience. Therefore, when an idea comes, there is an unconscious process triggered, mechanically, but, at the same time, also very naturally and humanly. A logic constructive method is developed depending on knowledge’s singularity, acquired during our life experience. This is mainly the only action obtained unconsciously because when we talk about intention, consciousness is readily brought up.
