Undesirable bodies gravitate towards each other, alienated by the lack of representation. Not parasites, nor helpless, nor desired, they function as dissonant triads, interferences in a strict grid of efficiency. Their utterances are perversions of the delusional will for perfection, to challenge and to upset the boundaries and expectations of the normative at large.
Angelo Custódio (1983, Portugal) sees noise as an exploratory field, silence as performativity opportunities and electronics as extended vocal possibilities. Bothered with the constructed aesthetic of the classical singing approach – which overpower the expression, creativity or experimentation with sound, Custódio develops a conceptual research, which embraces the process and the connection of his work to live art, questioning the definition of the human in relation to our contemporary reality.
His work connects to queer, disability theories and feminist studies, understanding gendered social hierarchies.
This exposition runs from 02 June - 30 July
