Círculo na areia 2019
* In a sandy terrain, I run in a circle on the sand in a spontaneous gesture, circling a randomly defined area, suggesting and generating some kind of impact or tension on the terrain surface, around it or inside and outside the circle.
“Círculo na areia” (Circle in the sand), is a point, a nucleus that stimulates and receives stimulus.
It is an action and at the same time a gesture that protrudes beyond its surroundings.
It is my free way to draw a harmonious parallel between the development of the individual and his place of performance.
"Circle in the sand", is an audio visual art work that will be shown in 4 (four) simultaneous projections on the corners of the walls of the exhibition room.
Projectors will be used, 1 (one) per corner, installed in 4 (four) or more top corners, providing a diagonal projection in relation to the entrance to the room.
Speakers will also be installed close to the projectors.
