Marcos Simoes 

How not to be understood? Infinite.

In residency from 12 until 25 november 2018

Something that is constantly moving from one place to another, from one thing to another. Something that exists in between things, on top of things, inside and outside the things. Something that appears, that is autonomous that moves slowly and fast, something that never stops. A some of things, an excess, immeasurable.

Marcos Simoes sees ART, an ART-WORK as a compound, a collection of things, a multitude of beings. At the moment of its creation, colours, textures, shapes, times, elements, motifs, sounds are operating and communicating. Consequentely it genders its shape, bringing the infinite to the finite (shape) and again to the infinite through the viewer. An art work is plural, multiple is a constant passage from one thing to another.

In this research project for a pieces-dance titled 'How not to be understood? Infinite', Marcos Simoes will approach Art as an infinite movement of Things. He will put a collection of different 'pieces' (Things) into relation through movement. This collection of 'pieces' are made of dances, images, text, objects and film. Art as a Thing that moves around, beyond, behind, on top, or under, that changes constantly, that is here and there and everywhere. Art as a dance of pieces. Art as Love.
