SUSANA MENDES SILVA. Life and Work: not as before but again

Life and Work: not as before but again is a document-based exhibition that follows and presents the artist’s production from the last two decades. The exhibition focusses on two aspects: registering and documenting the performances — the ways in which they can be conceived, displayed and delivered to the public as objects, readings or sound —, performance reenactments, and the creation of new works. These two moments coexist thanks to a bookobject that presents a compilation of texts which reflect on her body of work and a transcript of the conversation held between the curator and the artist, describing the ways, ideas and production behind this exhibition. The book-object will also activate different moments throughout the exhibition, which the artist has called Pages, where new works, performative installations and talks will be presented.

 

For more information on Pages, a series of performative projects which will take place throughout the exhibition period and within different spaces in the museum, the city and online, visit this webpage regularly.
