In·tra·du·zí·vel - untranslatable (2018)
Museu da Imagem e do Som de Santa Catarina, Florianopolis, Brazil, (2018) The retrospective exhibition of Silvana Macêdo’s and my collaborative work which we produced during our respective PhD’s (1999 -2004)
Our collaborative work in this exhibition (majority of it produced during our joint PhD’s) investigates a complex relationship interwoven between art, science and nature. One of the central elements of these collaborative works is the notion of translation or the untranslatable, as a device that triggers practices which are conscious of the translation process, or more accurately, of the transformation that it entails. Thus the artworks can be understood as translation processes in which nature is conceived as an untranslatable “original”.
