ANTONIO BOKEL


TEMPORARY RESIDENCY

ANTONIO BOKEL


TEMPORARY RESIDENCY

ANTONIO BOKEL "ALIGN"
TEMPORARY RESIDENCE AT CIDADELA ART DISTRICT


The line, path, direction, route, trend ... the act to align.
As a result of a three-week residency at Pestana Citadel Art District, Antonio Bokel leaves us with a solo exhibition, "Align", which will be presented in the Project Room, form October the 3rd until the 31th. "Align" is the result of a search in the field of duality substance / immaterial, one based search on a line transition and more subtle fields in which Antonio Bokel introduced through the installation and drawing, on a constant (impossible) attempt of  alignment within the physical space and matter. Here, the mortality existence and human consciousness occurs in the fact that however the line may seem perfect, in one’s eyes will always have the beauty of the human trait of imperfection.


Born in 1978, in Rio de Janeiro and graduated in Graphic Design, was in 2003 that Antonio Bokel  held his first solo exhibition in Ken's Art Gallery in Florence, Italy, where he lived and attended the photography and history art courses. His formation continued in Rio de Janeiro, where he attended classes od  live modelling painting classic painting  and art with the professors, Bandeira de Mello, João Magalhães and Luis Ernesto. Today, after more than 15 years since the beginning of his career, his works were already present in many galleries and urban interventions in Brazil, but also in Amsterdam, Portugal, the Dominican Republic and New York. Antonio Bokel works are also part of the major art collections of Brazil, as Gilberto Chateaubriand’s, the BGA Investments or at Rio de Janeiro Modern Art Museum. Currently, the artist is represented by Mercedes Viegas gallery in Rio de Janeiro.

A special interest for drawing and painting made him go to England to continue his studies in arts which were first started before architectural studies in FBAUL. There, he did a Master in Drawing at University of Arts London which terminated in September. His approach to work, in a fine art context, mixtures the knowledge acquired at FBAUL and at FA-UTL. Between going to Cidadela Art District and finishing his Master he did Sabotage at Maus Hábitos(Porto) and a project room at A Cunha(Lisbon).

GUILHERME GAFI "DEPRIVATION"
TEMPORARY RESIDENCE AT CIDADELA ART DISTRIC


Guilherme’s observations showcase a dispute about true value of space, real estate speculation and our own presence within the big “megacities”. The artist questions and observes the manufacturing of our own faceless acts. Using classical techniques such as watercolours, mixed with less noble and ephemeral materials like packaging tape, Guilherme creates a dialogue with the viewer. The artistpresents an unbalanced hierarchy of urban megacities and the visual urban chaos as a paradox in a coherent manner. His installations, photographs and videos show a notion of territory by placing urban tick marks in natural areas and protected landscapes, creating a visual controversy where the amount per square meter is offered as.


Guilherme Augusto Gafi (1986) was born in São Paulo, Brazil, where he still lives and works. With a degree in Fine Arts from the FAINC, early on the artist became interested in the urban development and dialogue, using visual semantics emerging from the chaos of urban aesthetics and semiotics of the places he grew up. Fed by one of the intrinsic characteristics of the mega city, the urban visual noise, the artist created a whole dialogue based on “non-identities” and ‘graphic codes’ present in everyday life of the urban pedestrian. Those codes are in general invisible and unknowingly consumed by those who are part of the urban alienation dynamics. In places where speed symbolises a supposed development, the time, space and sense of ownership dictate what quality of life is inevitably associated with — speed, traffic, number of likes or real estate. Guilherme Augusto Gafi portrays the anonymous figures of this process — faceless workers without a present identity caught in the urban jungle. Guilherme’s observations showcase a dispute about true value of space, real estate speculation and our own presence within the big “megacities”. The artist questions and observes the manufacturing of our own faceless acts. Using classical techniques such as watercolours, mixed with less noble and ephemeral materials like packaging tape, Guilherme creates a dialogue with the viewer.

HEBERTH SOBRAL "VIOLÊNCIA NÃO É BRICADEIRA"
TEMPORARY RESIDENCE AT CIDADELA ART DISTRICT


Born in Minas Gerais in 1984 the ‘Mineiro’ Heberth Sobral always been interested in art, later making up one  that puts a contentious topics of everyday life under discussion. He began his artistic career when he made a photography course that led him to be invited by Vik Muniz to work as his assistant and remains so to this day. Heberth develops its own projects using the support woodcuts, paintings, drawings, notes and dolls to build their own language, always focused on the representation of everyday life which addresses issues of behavior, thoughts and acts performed through a culture. Doing something always present in the lives of all the artist's idea is to bring the viewer into of his work through a memory.

RICARDO PASSAPORTE


RICARDO PASSAPORTE


Ricardo Passaporte is a portuguese artist, born in 1987 in Lisbon. Passaporte bows to Abstract Expressionism with his obvious focus on process and the intensely expressive gesture that runs throught his work. His paintings appear to be non-objective investigations of the line separating painting from sculpture. We can see the gestures, the movement becomes painting and its subject matter. His work gives value to an urban experience, recreated in parallels signs where the material itself and the movement are the main focus. His processes are only seemingly disoriented, however; the artist clearly cultivates methods by which he provokes coincidence and tempts the unexpected. He is also interested in the immediacy of the materials and sometimes on the use of spray paint. In this way pictures are produced to retain a high degree of uncertainty.


Ricardo Passaporte é um artista português, nascido em 1987 em Lisboa. Passaporte apresenta-se ao expressionismo abstracto com o seu foco óbvio sobre o processo de criação. As suas pinturas parecem ser investigações não-objectivas de uma linha que separa a pintura da escultura. Podemos ver os gestos, o movimento torna-se pintura. O seu trabalho dá valor a uma experiência urbana, onde o material em si e o movimento são os focos principais das suas peças. Os seus processos de criação são só apontamentos desorientados, contudo; o artista cultiva claramente os métodos pelos quais ele provoca coincidências e tenta o inesperado. Ricardo está também interessado no imediatismo dos materiais e, por vezes, o uso de tinta de spray. Desta forma são produzidas imagens de forma a manter um elevado grau de incerteza.
