Hand Shadow II / Silkscreen / 100x22cm / Edition of 30 / 2017
““The Mesh and the Circle” springs from a collection of visual testimonies of various labour and ludic activities and other daily practises rooted in empirical knowledge, that was conducted by the artists over the course of several months. Establishing intuitive relations between concrete gestures and substances, sensorial experiences and analogical thinking, the authors have created a fragmentary film immersed on the idea of transformation of matter, generating a revolving movement that metamorphoses itself over time. Throughout a sequence of diverse quotidian activities, solutions and abilities the spectator is conducted over a series of connections in a game of interplay between forms of magic, pleasure, geometry, symbolism and labour.
Through new configurations of images, ideas and other elements that constitute “The Mesh and the Circle”, the artists aimed to expand the cinematic experience, establishing a dialogue between the film and the space of the Museum of Image in Braga.”
