Onde o horizonte se move | Where the horizon moves | BARCELONA

Onde o horizonte se move | Where the Horizon Moves is a site-specific project where the horizon is treated as a field of shared fiction. Through the selection of a landscape and a place from where the audience can observe it, the project generates its gradual transformation through figures that appear and disappear on the horizon. This piece features neighbours from the Poble-sec district as volunteers and invites the public to witness a process of deceleration: from a vantage point, a plateau, an avenue, a landscape unfolds, a city is revealed. Here, the spectators, as if they were the guardians of the past, travel the horizon to decipher these figures blotted out by the sun, which become people, stories, worlds.

Gustavo Ciríaco is a Brazilian artist based in Rio de Janeiro. He has a strong international presence and has presented his works in Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, and more recently in the Far East. His work combines various artistic disciplines, showing an interest in other knowledge, other fields, other voices; often through people, looking for other ways to cope with everyday life, adding potential, tools and knowledge about how to deal with time and space. He has used choreography, theatre, video, storytelling and urban actions in conversational works where the encounter is the inspiration for fictions and shared situations.

Where the Horizon Moves was included in the official programme of Guimarães – European Capital of Culture 2012 (Sweet & Tender Collaborations, organized by Maus Hábitos) and by the Rio Occupation London artistic mission at the London Cultural Olympiads in 2012. The project was in residence at the Cidade das Artes, programmed at the Panorama Festival (Rio, 2013) and toured with the SESC Arts Circuit, visiting nine cities within the state of São Paulo.

About Me

My photo
Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro. I am a performing artist and art maker coming from dance. I love to dialogue with the historical, material and affective context we are immersed in any given situation. As art form, my work goes from multimedia stage conceptual work to convivial and open-air pieces. It strikes me the awareness and fictions arising from the sublime of daily situations, its materiality, the reference points that we cling to and build up our relation to reality and how meaning grows from this. contacts: |
