SOME EXPLICIT POLAROIDS
Algumas Polaroids Explícitas (1999)
Resentful, no laughter, no function. Beyond ideology, even harassing the formal discourse in which it presents itself, with what is dressed and sometimes disguised, what is always at stake is our body, the ways in which it relates and summatizes the events of each day, the urgent hard adversity, the perplexity of daily life. It is with these materials that our sentimentality is built - this strange place, always exposed, in its fragility, to be a house in demolition.
