Explanation of Time

txt

We live in a time of uncertainty. The pandemic has confronted us with loss.
the loss of freedom, the loss of the established, the loss of space, the loss of life and even the loss of death in its rituals and mourning.

In the face of the feeling of loss, the time for reflection, the time to return to the initial time, the time of encounter.

This was the starting point for the selection of the videos of these six artists, a human consciousness of belonging to a larger space, about which they need to discourse and meditate in order to understand themselves.

Through personal or historical memory, the mapped path, the literary voice, the recovery of ancestral practices, they resort to the contemplative need of the landscape that at the same time makes possible the distancing of the gaze that finally turns inwards.

 

Curatorial Text (by Leonor Lloret)

Explanation of Light

Explanation of Light, is made up of two programs curated by the Portuguese-Spanish researcher, curator and cultural manager Leonor Lloret (Appleton Associação Cultural). The first one is a collective session and the second is dedicated to the artist Catarina Vasconcelos, in such a way that both generate a poetic and subtle revision of what binds us to others and to the world, of home and time from multiple points of view.
