The catalysing idea behind my new project is the development of a thought around the show. The show that is usually presented, built, conceived. The show that the public sees, and wants to see. It is in search of an alternative area to the space that is categorically imposed, that I experiment different possibilities of communication, in order to adjust their real function to new issues, needs and urgencies. Breaking expectations, codes, myths, order and subverting them.
Sliding away senses, contents, in search of a new order of comprehension. Create from what is not supposed to be seen, accepted; from what is considered vain or inexistent.

Miguel Pereira

“ Movement became my reason for being, my excuse. Movement for its own sake. I forget who it was who wrote about the importance of doing nothing, how the art of doing nothing is one that most people seem to have forgotten. Well, I decided to resurrect the art. In doing nothing, I would be reduced to what I was moving through. I would, quite literally, become part of the scenery. I would blend, immerse. Dissolve.”

Rupert Thomson
“The Book of Revelation”
