Sulco (Medida de Corte)

Sulco (Medida de Corte) from Miguel Carvalhais on Vimeo.

Sound installation: Mirrors, wood, loudspeakers, spotlights, computer, sound and electric cables, haze.

July-August 2019, Convento de São Francisco, Coimbra.

“Sulco (Medida de Corte)” is installed at a crossing, a closed space with three doors that is a passage to other rooms. It is inspired in the history of the convent and its multiple occupations — spiritual, industrial, and cultural — and creates an immersive space that emanates light as it absorbs​ the skin of the room. It tears the space and time of the room, in a plane that rips the floor and separates sound sources that oscillate between friction and synchrony, stability and temporality, chaos and harmony.

“Sulco (Medida de Corte)” was commissioned by Dar a Ouvir, Paisagens Sonoras da Cidade.

O Som do Vazio: Anotações Sonoras reviewed by Arte Capital

Luís Ribeiro visited Anotações Sonoras: Espaço, Pausa, Repetição and wrote about it for Arte Capital.

(…) A sala de exposições é um corpo que pode ser habitado mas é, na mesma medida, um corpo vivido pela obra de arte e pelo público que a visita, transformando o vazio num corpo habitado e cheio de vida. Neste sentido, o corpo assume-se como potência que incorpora a obra de arte, passando a existir apenas no íntimo de cada ser que a visita.
