Para que servem as pedras senão para serem deslocadas?

Sandra Rocha

Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session: Open Call – Screening of competition finalists

An urge to move rocks which, precisely because of their symbolic weight, place themselves in our way. To do it with the strength of an archaic giant who would challenge and finally win the battle with the gods; or with human strength which, in the end would trick those same gods, avenging Sisyphus, freeing him from this eternal punishment: the punishment of being a man, a woman, mortal.

In the Azores, it is common to experience what feels like all four seasons in a single day. For “Weather Station,” Manuela Marques and Sandra Rocha inhabit the roles of artist, meteorologist, and geologist in order to explore the islands’ topography and history. In the exhibition’s first room is Rocha’s Escuta (Listen) (all works cited, 2019)—a wall-spanning grid of sixty photographs, taken during a three-minute window, of the white and blue swirls of coastal waters. Projected on the opposite wall is Marques’s R.A.S, a graphic projection based on seismic records registered by the local volcanology center, its undulating lines moving upward like a waterfall in reverse. While these works attempt to tune in to the tumult of the natural world, they also evince the elusive control humans seek over nature by using the orderly language of rectilinear arrangements and scientific measurement.

Marques’s photographic series “Surface Sensible 1–5,” displayed in the show’s second room, depicts sets of crumpled, mountainous sheets of iridescent cellophane in local environments, a visual metaphor for the indented features of a volcano. Close by is Point de fuite (Vanishing Point), a photograph of a man standing in front of a lake that reflects the surrounding greenery, vivifying Caspar David Friedrich’s theme of introspection in nature with its lush palette. In the third gallery, occupied solely by Rocha’s work, a series of large dark prints, “Pinturas monstruosas da baleia” (Monstrous Whale Paintings), portrays the almost imperceptible silhouettes of sleeping sperm whales—common visitors to the islands, where, in the late ’80s, whaling was slowly replaced by whale watching. The exhibition creates a space where the body, like a delicate weather vane, filters the subtle geological and atmospheric variations of this peculiar territory.

EXHIBITION

Weather Station

12 Jul – 06 Jan 2020

Artists| Manuela Marques, Sandra Rocha

Curated by| Sérgio Mah

Weather Station is an exhibition of photographic and video works by Sandra Rocha (Angra do Heroísmo, 1974) and Manuela Marques (Tondela, 1959), two artists with solid careers who, besides their personal and artistic affinities, have often explored the Azores in their work, delving into its territory, memory, its elements, the experience of its places and the conditions of its exuberant and ineffable landscape.

About two years ago, the two artists started planning an encounter: more than a dialogue, they wanted to explore the possibility of confronting two distinct but complementary ways of producing a work about this place, this multiform and floating land that defies the volatile nature of things and of their perceptibility. 

Sandra Rocha turned her gaze outwards, focusing on the boundaries of the islands and on the vastness of the sea. In this ”outward gaze”, the relationship with the cetaceans stands out, the domain of countless memories and narratives essential to discern the multiple symbolic and historical reverberations associated with this archipelago. Conjugating two subjective and poetic creative universes, Weather Station is the result of this intimate and parallel negotiation. In these images by Manuela Marques and Sandra Rocha, we discover insightful gazes on the peculiar and unique nature of a land animated by a conflagration of times and movements.

APPELTON SQUARE BOX: Para que servem as Pedras senão para serem deslocadas?

March 06, 2019

An urge to move rocks which, precisely because of their symbolic weight, place themselves in our way. To do it with the strength of an archaic giant who would challenge and finally win the battle with the gods; or with human strength which, in the end would trick those same gods, avenging Sisyphus, freeing him from this eternal punishment: the punishment of being a man, a woman, mortal.                                                                                    Uma vontade de mover pedras que, precisamente pelo seu pelo peso simbólico, se interpõem no nosso caminho. Fazê-lo com a força de um gigante arcaico que desafiasse e finalmente vencesse os deuses; ou com a força de um humano que, finalmente, enganasse esses mesmos deuses vingando Sísifo, libertando-o do seu castigo eterno : o castigo de ser homem, de ser mulher, de ser mortal. 

Photographier Paris, nouveaux regards sur la ville

Photographier Paris, nouveaux regards sur la ville

Hôtel de Ville

Du 8 novembre 2018 au 5 janvier 2019, l'Hôtel de Ville accueille une exposition dédiée à la nouvelle scène de la photographie contemporaine.

À l’occasion du lancement de Paris Photo, Foire internationale de photographie d’art, Paris devient, chaque année en novembre, la capitale mondiale de la photographie. En parallèle, cette année, la Ville de Paris a choisi de mettre en avant la jeune création photographique, au travers d’une exposition consacrée à la scène émergente, et d’un espace de rencontres où amateurs et professionnels de la photographie pourront se rencontrer et échanger. Avec cette exposition, la Ville de Paris réaffirme son attachement à la photographie. 

L’exposition dessine un nouveau visage d’une cité vivante et plurielle, à travers les regards de seize artistes de tous horizons. Dans une diversité d’écritures, ils s’attachent à la Ville ou à ses bordures, de manière décalée, inattendue, insolite. Tous travaillent avec cette matière foisonnante que sont ses habitants, son architecture, ses événements, son urbanité. Tous ont l’ambition d’un regard original, drôle ou grave, mélancolique ou coloré, chaotique ou silencieux.

"Cette exposition révèle le regard neuf, vif et feutré d’une nouvelle génération de photographes dont les clichés captent le quotidien des Parisiens. En accueillant à l’Hôtel de Ville de Paris ces photographies, nous mettons en lumière les multiples vies qui se juxtaposent et se croisent dans une ville qui a toujours fasciné et inspiré les photographes du monde entier" souligne Christophe Girard, adjoint à la Maire de Paris chargé de la culture.

Le commissariat est assuré par Anna Planas et Pierre Hourquet, directeurs artistiques et commissaires indépendants, ainsi que Fannie Escoulen, commissaire d’exposition indépendante pour de nombreuses manifestations et institutions photographiques.
