IT MAKES SENSE
It makes sense, cork and tile, like all things in life, is an experiment.
Experiments are mediators between nature and idea.
When ideas fail, men invent words.
But in the end, we won’t remember the most beautiful face, we’ll remember the most powerful word.

Press Release:

Underdogs Gallery is pleased to present “Conto Interrompido”*, a solo exhibition of (confusing, complicated, contradictory, ambiguous) messages by Portuguese visual artist Mário Belém in Lisbon, Portugal.
We’re all supposed to speak more or less the same language yet sometimes we understand (bugger all) nothing of what the other person is saying. In his first solo exhibition at Underdogs, Mário Belém presents an ensemble of works that invite the viewer to reflect – in an amusing way, free of any (crap) pretentiousness – on one of the greatest paradoxes of the present reality: communication breakdowns in a world where information reigns supreme yet suffers from its own excess. Clearly playing with the confusion, the complications, the contradictions, and the ambiguity which we frequently come across in face of the visual and oral discourse – of both individuals and formal systems of communication – that surrounds us in our day-to-day, the artist showcases here an entirely new body of work composed of an array of visual narratives materialised in pieces of various dimensions that are somewhat halfway between painting and sculpture in wood, a medium which he has been favouring in his recent artistic practice.

*The title plays with the similarity between the Portuguese words “conto” (tale; story) and “coito” (coitus). “Interrompido”

Press Release:

Desde a sua primeira exposição em conjunto, já se passaram quatro anos, uma crise dos 30 e sabe deus quantos desgostos de amor.
Desde que se conheceram, descobriram que fazem parte da mesma equipa… A equipa dos incuráveis românticos, dos lesionados das emoções e magoados no coração. A equipa que perde.
Talvez por isso, conseguiram manter uma relação de amizade à distância: baseada em partilhas de vídeos de animais bébés e mensagens de voz tardias, chorosas e/ou filosóficas.
Cada uma, à sua maneira, ruma destemida e corajosamente em direcção ao desconhecido para no fim descobrir que neste jogo do amor, muitas vezes se sai a perder…
Mas onde costumamos ver derrota, elas vêem potencial e inspiração (um obrigada a todos os ex-namorados).
Maria e Mariana continuam a ir aos treinos diários no ginásio da vida para, de cabeça erguida e coração forte, perderem cada vez melhor.

Location: Apaixonarte – Rua Poiais de São Bento, 57, 1200 076 Lisboa

Cost of entry: Free admission

Opening reception with the artist: Sunday, 31st of October 2017, 6pm
You can RSVP via Facebook HERE.

 

Press Release:

“Apaixonarte is proud to present “Crystalized 0.0”, a solo exhibition by SAMINA. The oppening with the artist will take place, on 31 October, from 6 pm. The exhibition will run until 28 November.

SYNOPSIS:

Along the years, the work of SAMINA has been based on the concept of geometrical compositions. where the piece is intended to fill in its entirety the space where it is set.

Recently SAMINA has explored other ways of expressing his work. Not losing his essence, where he contraposes the inherent geometrical rules to the organic universe of painting the human portrait, in CRYSTALIZED 0.0 the artist explores a different type of composition. In this new stage, the artist experiments with crystalizing a set moment in time and space, a still picture of deep meaningful human expressions.

CRYSTALIZED 0.0 is an attempt at capturing those specific fractions of seconds in the imperceptible time and space of humanity, where the artist will show a few of his new projects depicting artwork based on this new way of looking within his own humanity, seeking those fleeting moments, allowing the viewers to take their time looking at those brief moments in time.

BIOGRAPHY:

SAMINA I was born in 1989 in Portugal, but now live between Portugal and Brazil. Since my youth I ´ve been in contact with different mediums of artistic expression, concentrating mostly on painting. When I was 14 I started my path in the world of street art and accompanied its progress in Portugal trying my own way, being inspired by what I witnessed on the streets.

It was during this time that I was exposed to stencil and started to explore within this medium, my projects growing bigger with my ambition. From 2007 and finishing in 2013 took a degree in Architecture and the things I learned in geometry and space proved to be very inspiring to my art.

Since then I´ve been looking for different and exciting ways to express my vision and to keep challenging the stencil techniques I employ into more intricate and exciting works of art, imposing the conflict between geometry and human natural form.

For the past few years I felt capable of producing work in a consistent form, my own vision solidified and my identity settled from my roots in Architecture, my interest in graphic Design and my years of being out in the streets of Lisbon trying new things and breaking the form with street art.

Since 2010 I´ve had the chance to collaborate with many other artists and from this many opportunities to do my work have risen in countries such as Spain, France, The Netherlands, Brazil, Turkey and India. “

Press release information:

“Underdogs Gallery is proud to present “As Happy As Sad Can Be”, a solo exhibition by Portuguese visual artist Wasted Rita in Lisbon, Portugal. Constituting yet another instalment of the life-based narrative that Wasted Rita has been sharing with us in recent years, “As Happy As Sad Can Be” is about facing and embracing sadness in a fun way; about playing with fake happiness while being fundamentally sad. According to the artist, the metaphor that best illustrates this idea is the image of a dog happily wallowing in a pool of mud – where the artist is the dog, the mud is her negativity and the act of wallowing is her art.

About the artist:
Portuguese visual artist and illustrator Wasted Rita (1988) has been amassing a huge following since starting her blog “Rita Bored” back in 2011. The self-styled “natural born agent provocateur” likes to observe, reflect, write and draw, pouring forth little gems of mordant wisdom, reflecting an unconventional upbringing in a Catholic school to the sound of Black Flag. Her angst-ridden poetic invectives on contemporary life, popular culture, and human behaviour have been finding their way into magazines, books, exhibitions and art commissions in a growing number of countries around the world.
