«Fernando J. Ribeiro
Em Vila Franca de Xira, na varanda semi-circular que une a esquina da Avenida dos Combatentes da Grande Guerra com a Rua Alves Redol, (junto ao Museu do Neo-Realismo), Fernando Ribeiro apresenta uma imensa “bandeira” em duplicado especular que une também as duas simbologias de leitura política, económica e social mais decisivas do mundo ocidental. No longitudinal aparato pictórico aqui proposto, vemos apenas como a bandeira dos Estados Unidos da América absorve a simbologia estelar da bandeira da União Europeia. Com efeito, no espaço quadrangular azul onde normalmente se distribuem as estrelas referentes aos Estados americanos vemos agora as estrelas dos Estados europeus em forma circular, pontuando desse modo uma reflexão sobre a dependência europeia relativamente à omnipotente política norte-americana. Deste modo duplamente simbólico, o artista procura lembrar a invasão americana que desde o segundo pós-guerra e a execução do Plano Marshall tem vindo a transformar a Europa num parceiro político sem peso, cumpridor apenas das intenções de domínio dos EUA. Esta leitura permite-nos afirmar que as invasões dos séculos XX e XXI têm sido concretizadas, sobretudo, através do desenvolvimento de políticas económicas, financeiras e culturais, recorrendo por isso, cada vez menos, à força e às estratégias militares. Em última análise, é o signo e a sua transmutação constante que varrem o espaço físico e identitário, como nova apropriação ou domínio territorial.»

Home Sweet Hole, in International Performance Festival, Noseland, Aarau, Switzerland, 20-6-2015. Video: Bruno Schlatter

Visitors are invited to produce an enclosure with a centripetal bias because guided by a character that will accomplish a succession of photographic records that will absorb the communitarian space. As the records go from the individual to the collective, the camera will go on mapping and appropriating the sense of place built by an ephemeral micro-community.

Tell Me My Name,2010, 16 women perfume bottles, 16 men perfume bottles, variable dimensions. Performance undertaken in two shipping containers. In Projecto CONTENTORES, 17 de Junho de 2010, June 17th of 2010, Alcântara, Lisboa, www.contentoresp28.com

 

In two parallel industrial containers, perfume bottles of both sexes – feminine in one, masculine in ther other – are released to an imaginary vanishing point, in a way that the different scents will join on that same point. Tell Me My Name is a performance undertaken by the artist in two shipping containers. It will leave behind material and sensorial traces which evoke themes related to sensuality and identity and also sexual (in)determination, deriving not only from the fact that both containers have the same lighting, but also from the information enclosed in the traces left by the performance.

Tell Me My Name é uma performance executada pelo artista em dois contentores de carga marítima. Dela ficarão vestígios materiais e sensoriais, vestígios esses que remetem para questões relacionadas com a sensualidade e a identidade, e ainda para a (in)determinação sexual, que decorre quer do facto de ambos os contentores terem a mesma iluminação, quer da informação presente nos vestígios deixados após a realização da performance.

COLONIES

Untitled (Tomorrow Colonies),work in progress, 2014, earth, plastic buckets, spray paint, snow, variable dimensions. Displayed in the exhibition Bees Colonies, Noseland, Zurich, Switzerland. Photos Bruno Schlatter

Garbage cans are conceived to contain products that are supposed to be forgotten, to disappear from the face of earth. When half-buried garbage cans have nothing inside but black surfaces, they become holes in space that will be filled as time goes by, be it by plans, animals, or, even by human beings. Since scatology and utopia are always related, Untitled (Tomorrow Colonies) introduces a vertigo in the landscape, that is the symptom of metamorphosis time, of a time that produces an infinite delay in the definition of every existent being.
