After another period of confinement, the partnership Artadentro / Faro Municipal Museum, resumes the cycle of contemporary art Eklektikós, with the presentation of the exhibition Trinta e Sete, by Susana de Medeiros.
Thirty-seven designates an imaginary line taken as a starting point that corresponds to the same degree of latitude in both hemispheres. The artist speaks to us of mirrored latitudes, of two territories located in partially coincident latitudes: between 36º to 38º North in the Algarve and 37º to 40º South in Chile – in the regions of Bio-Bio, Araucania and Los Rios. It is this geography that delimits the territory of artistic research by Susana de Medeiros, who takes the territory as a laboratory in which “displacement” is a cognitive and projectual instrument that generates knowledge.
In fact, the hypothesis that Susana de Medeiros suggests when suggesting that “losing magnetic north can be a methodology to be adopted within the artistic process”, which provides new questions about the role of the artist in contemporary society, is very present in this exhibition. Is the artist halfway between the narrator, the ethnographer and the activist?
