Anatomy of Thought  

Our brain can be seen as a receptacle of ideas that, continuously being processed - fragmented, reformed, refined - help us to build a sense of space, to understand situations and to express feelings. Thinking is abstract and therefore we attempt to strengthen our comprehension of the world through the nuances of our perception. Through this psychological journey, images are milestones.


Anatomy of Thought was integrated in the collective exhibition Walking the Gray Area, curated by Valeria Siemelink, at Gallery Emília Cohen, Mexico City







Private view #2
62, 1º Dto

I walked through the house avoiding the usual way that would take me straight through the corridor until the kitchen. That time I decided to break the routine and get lost in a zigzag of the contiguous rooms. I wanted to contemplate the large variety of objects spread over the furniture and on the walls. I wanted to get surprised and amused. So from time to time, regardless of knowing that everybody was already gathered around the table, I slowed down my walk. When I finally reached the kitchen I smiled.

62, 1º Dto was inspired in the gatherings and talks that frequently took place in the house of pedro Lopes Vieira. 

Private view are installations in private spaces that promote one day event. The projects, always different, are not necessarily site specific but are surely inspired in the particularity of each place and host.

Private view project

In the privacy of our homes we rarely relate to objects as we do when visiting galleries or museums. In private spaces the context is dramatically different, and so it is the way we see and approach them. The invisible barrier in the former is broken in the latter. The objects become themselves items of intimacy. They are touched, worn, and sometimes given a function. They are there and they are not, veiled by the everyday routine.
We find them on shelves, on the floor, on the walls or attached to clothes, mixed together with many other things. Contaminated by the profusion of other forms and their stories.
To observe them in such circumstances is not a neutral act, nor is uncharged from visual overwhelming.

Private view #1
Heritage 

Initiating the cycle of events Heritage was a combination of very different works together for the same story. 
To each work was given a subtitle: Me, myself and I; We; Clippings; Self-portraits and Heritage are some in the images below.

Splendour of wearability

The body - borderline of two worlds - the personal and the social, became along epochs the ideal platform where personal stories, emotions, attitudes and, relationships are portrayed. 
In a language pliant to the needs of each culture, jewels charm and reflect what each of us imagine to be precious.

Taking as inspiration some works from the museum as well some jewellery from different periods and cultures my interest goes beyond their splendour: in what they potentially reflect, in new interpretations about the usage and meaning in jewellery; offering perspective beyond the ornament, there where the body becomes performer.

Spendour of wearability was exhibited in the Museu de São Roque in collaboration with Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa. 
On the occasion of this exhibition it was produced a catalogue with images of my work
photographed by Arne kaiser and a text by Jürgen Bock. Available in the shop of the museum www.museu-saoroque.com
