Penelope, Where will you be, Love?, is a work that take messages posted in real time on Twitter where the word love appears , randomly selected and printed on a paper strip ending shattered on the floor. Perhaps there is no more eloquent way to demonstrate the futility of any effort dedicated to define love. As with love, the work of art is forever impossible to define in all its complexity. So much in love as in art there are excesses that are beyond the scope of language."
Friday, May 6 • 12:30pm - 12:45pm
Body of Desire, Machine of Desire
With the influx of media now the presence of sexually explicit images is expressed in areas of life where previously there would have been inconceivable. Off the field strictly pornographic sexuality appears as a trademark holder, and together with the commodification of desire is a completely unmediated gesture of the body and pleasure. These pictures do not mediate a real experience of pleasure and desire, but we are presented with a series of behavioral paradigms and parameters completely fictitious. It's just that media coverage in media where the seeking of Adriana Marmorek begins, on what she calls the architecture of desire. Her works, object installations, ask initially for the intrusive nature of the sexual image in the media. Curator: Paula Silva
