ON EXILE – José Carlos Teixeira€24.00
Texts by Ana Anacleto, João Pinharanda, Steven Henry Madoff, Jeremy David Bendik-Keymer, Maria Iñigo Clavo, Linda Ehrlich, Maria de Fátima Lambert, and Jean D. Soares (PT/EN) This book presents, through a series of works produced between 2016 and 2017, a reflective look on, on the one hand, mental illness and depression and, on the other hand, refugee status in the current context. The concept of exile is both thought of from a geopolitical perspective, as it is interpreted metaphorically. With reference to the language of the documentary, the video-essays on display methodologically explore the interview as artistic practice and kinematic territory, creating space for empathy and allowing the construction of intimate and psychological portraits.
SOUND CLIMAX – Pedro Cabral Santo€30.00
SoundClimax is not really a book. It pretends to be a true artistic artifact, able to cross the poetic, sonorous and moving image through a series of artworks made in the last 30 years, mostly in partnership and collaboration. 17 video installations, 17 ambient sound pieces (remix, mixture, found footage, noise, sampling, trash and sound pieces), from the FUZIVEL Project platform, with sound design and remastering by Fernando Fadigas, and also 17 excerpts from poems make the final object.
PELE E PEDRA – Ana Rito€24.00
Texts by Isabel Nogueira, João Silvério, Ana Rito (PT/EN) Ana Rito investigates the presence of the body and the image. And when attentive to the perception modes and a sense of permanence, she also researches the relationships established over time and space. The reference of the title to skin and stone invokes the succession of strata and the density that makes up the matter, but also the way the artist approaches her work. In these works, the human figure is predominantly alone and in tension. The action arises from a relationship with the environment and with the objects that populate it, often reported to the body. And the way light shifts reinforces the expressiveness of matter, which is already accentuated.
ARQUIVO E INTERVALO – José Maçãs de Carvalho€24.00
This book brings together four texts that approach four films around the subject of the archive and which somehow epitomize key issues of photographic and videographic practice. Since 2010, the artist’s practice has been exclusively around issues relating to the archive and its expressiveness. At the same time, this project gave rise to an academic research that crossed practice and thinking, spreading to several exhibitions.
