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.
