THE BLOODLESS SHADES SHED TEARS
Adrian Ganea

Based on recent studies in biology related to the theory of symbiosis, Adrian is testing various scenarios with automated puppets and a computer simulation of symbiotic life forms. It is about questioning through technology, the conditions of “living together” and the possible means of coexistence of organisms, whether biological or not. In this particular exhibition he will present his research and he will share online files of the simulation as well as further documentation of his work.

And if he had to take into account not only the living ones, but also the pictures we create and that haunt us – ghosts of technology?

TRANSMEDIA SOUNDTRACK IN PUBLIC SPACE
Centro Cultural Malaposta and surroundings
November 7th and 8th, 6:00 PM
Approximate lenght 45′
With the collaboration of Susana Mendes Silva

POSTPONED BECAUSE OF RAIN
This piece requires the use of each participant’s smartphone + headphones + wi-fi

 

Marion gives us a different view of feminist struggles: that of the enemy. The public, equipped with headphones, is guided on a walk in the urban space to explore the world of Incels *. This experience mixes a personal story with that of an incel. During this tour, each spectator will be able to personalize their experience to enter the mysteries of masculinists.

*The incel subculture (English neologism for involuntary celibacy) designates misogynist online communities whose members define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner. Those who claim to be incels are almost exclusively men who gather on the internet around a common cause: hatred of women.

URBAN GAME
Jardim do Príncipe Real – Meeting point at the playground

POSTPONED BECAUSE OF RAIN

 

Changing the scale, moving the eyes, “Sprites of Meadowlands” addresses the exploration of hidden spaces in the park. It starts with a walk and all the details that can characterize the morphology of the park. Viewers are invited to participate in a game designed to activate a specific urban location, in this case the Principe Real park. Playing with what is hidden and what is shown, Teja questions our perception of reality and social practices in the city. The participants are invited to interact with the project online as well via this link: meadowlands.surge.sh

VIDEO-INSTALLATION

Approximate length 30′
Maximum capacity 12 people maximum

 

Olinda proposes an oneiric journey from a gallery of real or fictional portraits of dreamers, apprehended in a mysterious transition between vigil and sleep. It is in this material-immaterial threshold and in the unconscious-conscious dialogue that the subject dreams. It is this realm of symbol and memory that the viewer can explore here.

SOUND INSTALLATION
Centro Cultural Malaposta – Black Box
November 7th and 8th, from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM
In loop

The installation proposes a soundscape that connects bodies in water with bodies of water through physical, technically-mediated and speculative immersion. A dialogue emerges between corporeal sounds, terrestrial and underwater ones, in which fluidity replaces predilections for the solid and the fixed.
