GROUP ART EXHIBIT | Now, I Wonder | FREE
January 15 @ 11:00 - 18:00FREE
Former palace turned concept store Lx.Lapa presents their latest collective art exhibit — ‘Now, I Wonder’ — this Saturday. It featurs works by Ana Moraes, Diogo Henrique, Maria Peixoto Martins, Mel Keane and Thomas Langley, and is curated by Carolina Ribeiro.
Here’s what Leonor Zuzarte says about it:
‘What are days for?’ The question is posed by Philip Larkin, whose answer has the same false sense of simplicity: ‘Days are where we live.’ Marked by the intention of registering everyday life, these works are based on the common ground of the present, the capturing of these days. It is this focus on the present that makes this space for understanding between artist and spectator possible: a space in which traditional plastic languages coexist and interact with the new digital world, whose peculiar language already permeates the collective way of thinking of all those who either grew up with it or saw it grow in real-time.
This window into contemporaneity implies a certain voyeurism, an intimacy generated by the sharing and communicating of small details of solitude. We are invited to enter this ‘now’ registered by other eyes and other hands. To reflect not only our present condition but also what we leave behind, and the limits of the possibilities of what follows. The role of the artist appears then not only as the capturer of a moment but also in this search and rupture of the limits it imposes. Having found no definitive answers we are left only with the notion that beyond each shattered horizon lies the path to what we don’t know how to ask yet.”
