EXPOSITION

INSISTING ON THE SAME. BACK TO A SUGGESTED PRESENCE

INSISTING ON THE SAME returns to A SUGGESTED PRESENCE, an exhibition presented in December 2018 within the project iN SPiTE OF in Porto. At that time, the format approached the visual essay and INSISTING ON THE SAME intends to approach from the exhibition an old interest in impermanence, by the traces of a presence that seems to have vanished, but nevertheless beats somehow in a series of works that will occupy the EACC.

We start again from the feeling that something has abandoned the space moments before our arrival, leaving as a witness almost unnoticeable traces, a heat still being experienced and the alteration of the shapes that some hands can practice on any element on which they exert pressure. The exhibition focuses maybe on the determination to continue recording our passage through the world.

Even though modern means of production have tried to relegate the particularities to ostracism, seeking a uniformity that limits any affective gesture about the manufactured, the intention is the enrichment of the world by means of difference, and the exhibition works in this sense, as an atmosphere halfway between what hands do and what hands receive.
 
Works by Kasper Akhøj, Berta Cáccamo, Alejandro Cesarco, Rui Chafes, Marguerite Duras, Claudia Fernández, Carla Filipe, Fernanda Gomes, Rubén Grilo, Julio Jara, Carlos Maciá, Jordi Mitjá and Xoan Torres return to all these questions. Some of them move directly from the relationship of the work and its processes with the hands that execute them and to which they seek to adapt and others move from emotional issues or the desire to record the passage of others along this space. BACK TO A SUGGESTED PRESENCE intends to resume the desire to enter a cherished exhibition that could return us that warmth of the hands as a workforce, but also as limbs that narrow in times where coldness seems to have invaded us.
