Work in Progress at The Mews Project  (London, U.K)

Opening at The Mews Project 5 pm

d.a. is a flexible platform initiated by Fernando Mesquita and Ludwig Kittinger. Artists and other professionals are invited to different locations to form a collaborative ( co-labourative) structure to serve as a hub for research of artistic mechanisms and conditions relating to a situation.
Our focus is on leveling the process between idea and outcome in which the existing manner of spatial and/or social and/or any contextual situation serves as a foundation. We encourage participants to step out of their usual work patterns, as a suggestion, not a requirement.
Within the d.a. dynamics we recognize the action (activity/non-activity) as more relevant than the result. The project engages on forms of collaboration in order to: do things, or not, independently of whom or/and what. We are not seeking for types of collaboration that are based on collectively following some concept where a conclusion is the objective.

(...) We continue along as separate bodies. (...)

Black Flag surrenders under Lea Bridge Road, all melody destroyed, decayed, destructed like a new pair of jeans and a guy works on his boat confused by the boombox blaring with this art audience waiting for something better to happen. Our routines have locked us in, relapsing to the party - the thick amorous air, the frenetic unhindered movement - we can rewind, sobriety approaching with every damp gust of wind and warm ray of sun, walking to warm - wishing we could be naked.

Bricks Are Heavy, 2013

Bricks Are Heavy marked the beginning of a long line of works in which the artist simultaneously uses the radio cassette recorder as a sculptural element as a sound amplification device. For this piece Rui Toscano commissioned a list of soundworks / tracks from different artists including myself to be playing in a different boombox. There will be sounds pieces from a wide range of artists as Lee Ranaldo, Julião Sarmento, João Onofre, or DJ Ride.

Kilgore Trout, personagem no romance Breakfast of Champions, chama os espelhos de leaks porque entretia-o considerá-los como portais entre dois universos; sempre que alguém dizia a Kilgore I have to take a leak, este respondia: Where I come from, that means you're about to take a mirror. Na recta final da história, o próprio Kurt Vonnegut, o autor, entra na história e interage com as personagens que criou, usando uns óculos espelhados. Aqui, os óculos espelhados de Kurt são de facto um portal entre dois universos: o do autor (real) e o do universo das personagens (ficção). Kurt consegue ver através dos leaks mas os personagens apenas vêm um espelho quando o fitam nos olhos.
Estrica foi feita por Alexandre Rendeiro, Carlos Gaspar, Diana Policarpo, Marco Franco, Pedro Azevedo e Tamara Alves, que transformam páginas e alguns pontos da cidade de Lisboa em leaks. Uns são-no em si mesmos; outros acabam por sê-lo pela estética incisiva e conceptual com que os seus criadores os abordaram; ao fim ao cabo, uma das coisas que une todas as Artes é, indubitavelmente, o conceito de Portal. Todos transportam o leitor ou observador e/ou possibilitam a visualização da sua forma e conteúdo, ou seja, da sua tão específica configuração espaço-tempo. Todos os objectos artísticos têm uma moldura, por mais gasosa ou líquida que seja, e é por essa moldura que o observador ou leitor contempla o Universo criado pelo Artista. Por sorte, a superfície do outro lado é espelhada e aquele Universo não nos observa a nós – mas sem dúvida que nos transforma. 
Como? Essa verdade, sim, é que está por trás de um espelho impenetrável, e é asfixiante a curiosidade e o ímpeto que temos em conhecê-la.
