Agora não/Not yet (w/ Filipa Ramos)
Performance and installation.
«A letter was sent to various persons - dear acquaintances and some admired individuals - inviting them to share a non-done projects of theirs. The ongoing collection of these contributions is thus becoming an anthology of non-pursued thoughts. Each of them will be publicly opened one by one and displayed in an event that will take place on the evening of the 17th of June 2011, from 6pm onwards, at The Barber Shop in Lisbon. Simultaneously, José Albergaria, from Change is good, Cláudia Castelo and António Gomes, from barbara says, will be producing in real time the catalogue of the project.»

For Agora não/Not Yet, I presented a series of A2 posters in primary colours that were one of various unrealised projects.

The posters functioned as specific sites of documentation, which contained sequences of time and a space for the interaction of my body and its presence around the urban spaces that were encountered in a series of "situationist derives" around my neighbourhood in East London, thus, interacting via a series of improvised movements and basic poses, as outcomes of a sensing of a relation to the site, to found urban matter of all kinds, as organic-inorganic, vegetal or mineral.
