to Nov 15 | ART EXHIBIT | Tiago Baptista: Febre | 3€
October 13, 2021 @ 18:00 - November 15, 2021 @ 22:00€3
Portuguese artist Tiago Baptista dabbles in painting, drawing,
comics, installations, various online and offline, and runs the blog Desenhando Constelações (‘Drawing Cponstellations’), where he publishes his writing and podcasts. Here’s what organizers Galeria Zé dos Bois say about his show, ‘Febre’ (aka ‘Fever’):
“Evoking several references with pictorial potential – from graphic elements of comics and illustration assumedly more figurative, and others tending to be abstract, to the history of Western painting, passing discreetly through the imagery linked to Internet navigation and digital platforms – Tiago Baptista summons for these paintings a set of prosaic references, but others also assumedly spiritual and reflective. In search of a place where we can question ourselves about the power relationship between spoken and written language and the thought of painting; between a programmatic production and another, poetic one, based on intuitive experience about the gap between human and animal, seeking, sometimes with the use of humor and free association of images, create new meanings where not always these dialectical processes seek to end, but rather open discussion.”
Sounds feverish to us.
The show* is up until Nov. 15.
*NOTE: The gallery is closed Sundays.
Use of mask required.
