about the show
Every time I´m at Dama Aflita, I get fascinated with a beautiful metallic red hook that keeps the door wide opened. What comes from the exhibition “Massa Falhada” has a strong connection with this element and the memory of the expression “being on the nail” and its opposite, to be “off the hook” – no problem, free to think too much.
In “Massa Falhada”, you will find a non-colorful visual essay, with representations of saws, hooks, tape, strings, text, and so no particular name to the mix, about a feeling of being stiff, limited, suspended, not caused by a block in creativity but by its opposite, an excessive rumination, exhausting.
