The Odder Sideshow intends to rescue secular circus techniques, from the golden age of the great Traditional Circuses, but which fell into disuse due to the risk they imply, namely: the throwing of knives, Fire Swallow, Escapism, Blockhead, Juggling with chainsaw and balance on machetes (…) and interconnect them with clown technique and physical theater. This show seeks to reflect on the emotional sadomasochism of contemporary society’s relationships as a binding link for the circus techniques used.

FARSA Farsa is the new album by Sílvia Pérez Cruz. In her discographic works, Sílvia merges albums of her own compositions with others of recreation and interpretation, in which she makes versions by other artists. This is a record that she created from conversations with other artistic disciplines such as theater, cinema, dance, poetry, painting or animation cinema. Recorded between 2019 and 2020, Farsa (impossible genre) responds to the artist’s concern about the duality of what is shown and what we really are, how the inner fragility of the intimate survives in these times when the superficial is so devastating that the what you see can get confused with what you hear. To illustrate this search and continue to explore these concerns she created Farsa Circus Banda – a band formed by great musicians of her generation, with whom she is reunited after many years and her own research and love for music.

EXHIBITION 8 APRIL – 3 JULY 2021 LÍGIA OLIVEIRA BETWEEN LAND AND SEA BETWEEN THE SEA AND THE SHORE Biography Lígia Oliveira grew up surrounded by the tranquility of the landscapes of southern Portugal, which have inspired her ever since. She initially studied Product Design, and later obtained a PhD in Urban Design in Barcelona, ​​where she had the experience of working in various disciplines and cultures. This helped Oliveira to develop a broader approach to art, by understanding the physical space and its elements, its relationship with other disciplines and to train the eye for details at different scales. Fascinated by the possibilities of expression and investigation of art, with her work Oliveira intends to touch, inform and inspire emotionally for an integrated relationship with nature. Multiplying the elements until they form patterns fascinates her, as well as finding new ways to interact with each other, in a balance between discipline and freedom of expression. These repetitive sequences transform the painting process into a tranquilizing and meditative act. Oliveira was a professor at the University of Porto and a researcher at the University of Barcelona. She is the author of several scientific articles, co-author of the book The Economy […]

After another period of confinement, the partnership Artadentro / Faro Municipal Museum, resumes the cycle of contemporary art Eklektikós, with the presentation of the photography exhibition The Interminable Taxonomic Task of João Paulo Serafim. In this exhibition, which articulates photographs taken between 2009 and the present, including recent and unpublished works, João Paulo Serafim voluntarily appropriates a designation normally associated with biological classification, to allude to the cataloging and organization museological practices from the primordial cabinet of curiosites – collections that appear in the 14th century, where heterogeneous and unpublished objects were collected, grouped into four categories: artificialia or mirabilia, naturalia, exotic and scientifica—, proposing a reflection in a broad sense, about the function of the contemporary museum. In this exhibition, João Paulo Serafim, shows us part of a particular artistic path, in which he proposes a contemporary reading of dystopian realities that we face in our daily lives. About the artist: João Paulo Serafim (Paris, 1974), lives and works in Lisbon. He did his artistic training at Ar.Co., in Lisbon, where he has been a photography teacher since 1998.

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? Source:https://artadentro.com/2021-2/trinta-e-sete-susana-de-medeiros/

Born in Albufeira, Ana Sota is a self-taught artist who likes to arouse emotions through her work. She attended several courses in printmaking, drawing and painting in Macau (Asia) and in Varese (Italy). The artist explores monochromatic a lot and almost always uses acrylic on canvas and various types of wood and MDF. Always with a lot of color, she likes the game between the bright and the opaque; the use of strong colors and the sometimes minimalist repetition of the color game allow us to enter a simple but vibrant universe.
