Marcha ao Cvlto do Fvtvrv. 2013/2018
Cvlto do Fvtvrv itself is one complex artwork that is formed by and ever-growing series of paintings, installations, performances, website, social media, digital art, animations, films, sculptures, jewelry, temples and videogame. It can be presented in several formats considering the context and environment. The principal actions are a street march or a march followed by a stage musical presentation, ceremony with food, information and voluntary desk and temporary temples.
The main aesthetic presupposition of Cvlto do Fvtvrv is the appropriation of the basic structure of religion and the military as a hacker. In order to create a “church-sect” with all its manifestation (anthropomorphic icons of divinities, manifest, hymns, publications, uniforms, outfits, medals, identification and loyalty cards) the artist removes the mystic and ideological contents and adds symbols created from personal reflections in accordance to contemporary themes, as the corporate democracy, consumerism and imperialism.
