Artist Statement:


    Manhães’ process consists of the appropriation of everyday life objects; capturing them with a video camera and making them talk. In Liquescente, an old glass vase breathes rhythmically with water flowing in and out of it. The video is connected to a device which reacts to the animation’s voice. The whole operation is analogue, so every little event is subject to possible imprecision and random malfunctions, like a real organism.

    This project is part of the cooperation with the Instituto Sergio Motta.
