In Form, formless, a work constructed in parallel with that of Bruno Lopes for an exhibition (Forma, informe) at Arte Contempo, in Lisbon. The different and autonomous approaches – form and formless – were presented in the same time and space. If form serves as a basis for recognition and establishing a hierarchy in the visual world, the formless, as a process functions to subvert that exact organization.
The studio served as starting point for this disorganization process of the object, the human body. The human form, de-figured, un-rational, animal-like, horizontal, or, in brief, formless.
For more on concepts concerning this work FORMLESS: A — USER’S GUIDE, by Yve-Alain Bois and Rosalind E. Krauss is recommended.
