Artist Statement

  A Certain Writing Inclination:

  Western writing practices reflect the way we draw. These inclinations have an important role in the formation of our persona. The ways in wich we doodle and scrible are similar and repetitive in their essence.

  This work is a physiological diary about drawing repetition. By trying not to write, I wanted to overemphasize the formal arrangements of handwriting itself; almost like a copyist monk, translating without knowing the original document language.

The Wall of Pleasure:

If for Foucault pleasure is a fundamental right of the post-industrial society, the impossibility of achieving this pleasurable self is directly associated with the divergence between Freud and Reich. One will understand that the power of orgasm was replaced by analysis, thus becoming complacent with the consumerist society in which pleasure is also conditioned and denied.

 This installation also integrates sound through a sound piece composed by Adolfo Luxúria Canibal (b.1959) and António Rafael (b.1971), in collaboration with Estrada, further enhancing the notion that those primordial guttural sounds, breathing and percussion are themselves as conditioned and limited as a pre-established architected language.
