Marcos Simões (PT): How not to be understood? Infinite
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.
I see ART, an ART-WORK as a compound, a collection of things, a multitude of beings, colours, textures, shapes, times, elements, motifs, sounds that are operating and communicating at the moment of its creation and that 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.
