Artist Statement

 

CORRESPONDENCES


Alberto C. and Ricardo R. are lovers. They are both from Brazil but Alberto lives in Rio while Ricardo lives in Florida.

[Fernando Pessoa, is their patron saint]

Exchanges:

Alberto sends ink drawings (Penelopes) and Ricardo scans them and sends Photoshop versions (Combrays).

They have an art game: a medium into another (a poem into a gesture into a video into a photograph etc).

[their postcards to each other: "Je est un autre" and " Madame Bovary, c'est moi" - Rimbaud + Flaubert]

I am of their age and also from Rio. I stand in the very cross between who and where.

You can be their voyeur:

Their drawings, photographs, videos, sound, e-mails - longing memorials to their lack: now I am then.

 

Alberto C. and Ricardo R. are two characters that I invented. Also two facets for myself: right in between fiction and autobiography.

They exchange e-mails; kind of a novel (e-mails into an art medium). My broken English becomes an index of their separation.

2 characters: 2 possibilities for myself: a love story: esquizofrenia: North/South politics: artworks as materializing incantations.
