Project

From experimental play Dalila Gonçalves tests the permeability of materials and processes of artistic practice and daily life.

By using video, photography and installation she conceives objects that do not always imply real transformation of things but rather materializations of subtle unexpected, ironic, absurd and metaphorical use of matter. The subtlety of the information, the nature of materials or the modus operandi chosen, play with the very relation of “perception” and the idea of “evidence”. These strange moments are, perhaps, the kind of border between the physical reality and fiction which trigger the mechanisms of feeling and thinking that give meaning to art object.
