“In my first incarnation, I was Caesar

In my second incarnation, I was Jesus

In my third incarnation, I was Marie Antoinette

In my fourth incarnation, I was...

I don’t remember what I was in my fourth incarnation”

[Song with Vítor Torpedo, edited on the cd “Anywhere else”, Lux Records]

These are the first verses of the video/song* “A little bird in a tree”, a title that translates the condition in which this individual will find himself in the present incarnation. But, before being a bird in a tree, there will have been other things he remembers and others he doesn't...
It is this fourth indefinite incarnation that opens up the possibilities for the works in this exhibition.
A space of pure plasticity in which drawings find form and place, forms in passage between the things we remember, the things we believe we discover, the things that might have existed, the things that  already were, the things to become  and the things that are nothing.
