Este é o meu corpo
This is my body.Between the statement and the question.Yes, this was my body. These solo works have been my body – my physical, personal, artistic body – over 28 years. But they are also a collective body, inscribed in different circumstances and contexts, social, political and artistic contexts and can also tell this story. I believe that artistic creation has consequences for all of us, just as I believe that our personal actions have the same expression. I believe the duty of the living is to remember the dead just as I believe the duty of art is to give voice to all those who do not have it. I increasingly and consciously believe in the idea of God. And so I increasingly believe that the most fragile, the most perishable, the unique and individual must be protected.But is this still my body?Don’t know.And what body can be this one that continue looking for it self through the work?What body could it be?This is the first reason that leads me to unify works that have been carried out piecemeal throughout 28 years of my life, to find myself in relationship with the others in this privilege of artistic creation and to continue to live in wonder.
