Ana Rebardão - SOPRO
Ana Rebordão’s MFA Degree Show addresses the idea of danger and fear, since it formulates questions about destruction in the sphere of beliefs.
The KHM Gallery is filled with a series of videos developed by the artist during the past and the current year. Her body appears as an instrument in order to materialize the images she dreamed of. The performances are visual and framed, which reflects the eye of a painter.
This body of work is an oeuvre with a domestic contour. Most of the time, the viewer is invading a private space where he does not belong. It is a poisoned invitation to see a woman by herself, for herself, and letting go of herself through performed acts. It is a figure expressing a certain truth within a certain lie. The work sets-up an enigma, a sense of trauma.
From religion to the intimate, Ana Rebordão’s work creates a space that redefines these realities - the familiar crumbles when one receives the unknown. The videos are presenting a narcissistic emptiness – the space of separation and rejection – an ephemeral state of destruction, superficiality and humour, absolutely necessary for a being to come; A site. A sopro.
Sopro is a Portuguese word for:
Sway of Air; Breath or Sigh; An Influx; A Will (Good or Bad); Power; Strength; Soft Sound.
