Suck and blow.
Depending on the context, these two words can be both antonyms and synonyms.
This year, the day after International Women’s Day, The Switch art gallery has the pleasure to present “Suck & blow” by Carolina Pimenta.
Here’s what they tell us:
“Carolina’s work has two distinct strands: on one hand, the exploration and introspective journey of herself as a body; on the other hand – the investigation of new territories and social interaction. These components are influenced and offer mutual contributions, in a reflexive process in search of liberations and exploration of the now. As our role within our culture is ever more questioned and shifting, photographing compulsively day-to-day/ night-to-night, Carolina questions and examines the relationships between youth, the effects of technology, changes within our social dynamics, and nature.
Born in Porto, Portugal, 1988, Carolina Pimenta graduated from Leeds arts university in visual communications. She lives and works in Lisbon.
The Switch is an Artist-run gallery born with the vocation to present young talents and emerging artists.”
Opening: Saturday 9th of March – 18h-22h.
On view from March 13th through March 30th.
Open Wednesday to Saturday – 15h-19h.
