"Me Desculpe, foi Apenas um Lapso"

Me Desculpe, foi Apenas um Lapso

The exhibition consists of a series of photographs made by the use of Polaroid, performed between 2000 and 2016. These are personal, autobiographical records, which did not have the pretension of being exposed as art when taken, but they've reached a density that made me rethink of its importance, its meaning, and its power. The vernacular aesthetics, as well as the failures and deletions, are potentiated in order to symbolise the imperfections of life and affective relations. The fragility of the artifice in relation to the photograph as a memory is presented in the noise and incompleteness of the images. Those images are our faded ghosts, but are also glaring lights, such in a first glance. Pure irony: in an attempt to perpetuate life we record its impermanence. I get baffled, because I was taught that one must always be assertive, and make it last. They sold us the illusion that most of the time we are right, but in this pursuit of the idealized happiness we are constantly shrouded in noise and in attempts that get overlapped, merged, and become diffuse. I go through myself. Such thing like error and to be right does not exist.
