After Budapest, after the Danube – back to the studio

After Budapest, after the Danube – back to the studio

I have just returned from Budapest, having spent a month watching, listening, photographing. Being attentive to all the inner echoes that I could perceive in living this majestic and decadent city.

The words of Claudius Magris in his book “Danube” were my first guide, from which I accepted all derivations and deviations.
Now, I begin the work in the studio: it is about listening and seeing all the photographic and sonorous material.

See you soon!

Artistic exchange Lisbon-Budapest 2018

Artistic exchange Lisbon-Budapest 2018

During  July 2018 I will be participating on an artistic residency in Budapest. Supported by the Budapest Galéria, I will continue to follow a river on a project nammed: From Lisbon and Budapest or the Tagus and the Danube.

Budapest Galéria is Budapest’s municipal structure of contemporary art: its activities include the installation of contemporary works in the public space, the organization of exhibitions at its premises in the heart of Budapest and the exchange of artists in residency.

An exchange promoted by the Lisbon City Council under the Lisbon-Budapest protocol twin cities.

From the experience gained by photographing the Tagus and after the reading of the “Danube” by Claudio Magris, I propose to return to look and listen to the Danube.

From a suitcase, apparently empty, emanates a 20-minute sound report made from the recordings made along the photographic missions of The Crossing.
It is a matter of evoking: on the one hand, the crossing of frontiers – in this case Portuguese-Spanish – as a metaphor for the transition from one condition to another; and on the other, Benjamins’ problematics from the anonymous flâneur, to the memory, to the aura, to the narration, to the transmission.
