Stereotank – Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente

postOpening June 10th, 4pm / until August 5th

Stereotank is a design studio founded by Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente, dedicated to the research and exploration of the common grounds between architecture, art and sound. The studio works as a laboratory for design and creation of architectural artifacts, immersive installations, hybrid objects and instruments often using repurposed materials and pre-fab systems. Stereotank focus is to re-invent program with existing resources, with the aim of looking at old things with a fresh eye, relying on simplicity and intuition. Understanding urban scape as the medium, one of the main interests at this scale is the activation of public space through the insertion of participatory projects that engage, entertain and educate the users.

Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente, propose a new site-specific sound installation at Largo do Trovador, in Guimarães. At CAAA gallery, there will be a retrospective exhibition about their work.

Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente graduated from the School of Architecture and Urbanism of The Universidad Central de Venezuela in 2005. After conducting a design studio about the common territories between architecture and music at the same school, they moved to New York to pursue a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University graduating with honors in 2007. They currently live and work in Miami.

Opening June 10th, 4pm / until August 5th

[ triptychs ] is a series of photographic narratives of urban and rural transformation in three distinct contexts – Portugal, Okinawa (Japan) and London. Inspired by the Okinawan folk tale ‘The Golden Bird’, it depicts stories of resilience, reinvention, and demolition – three human acts that portray different approaches to spatial and social transformation. [ triptychs ] illustrates atypical beauties and functional aesthetics giving voice to the mundane, capturing what ones’ eyes tend to dismiss. It presents an alternative story of the every day, distant from what is conventionally considered to be alluring, questioning the notion of territory and spatial transformation.

A Performatic Conversation

post

July 8th, 4pm

On the way to our presentation in October of Pigafetta, a play created by Marcos Barbosa and David Colorado, with some specific characteristics besides ots 24 hours duration we have organized this debates which are developed around the fundamental themes from our work, and are used towards the introduction, discussion and preparation to this happening.

The first conversation already happened on the 13th of May, with David Colorado, that from Buenos Aires, performatically talked with Marcos Barbosa, using his monologue A trip to Rome, in a n experience of manipulation of the Play, through the intervention of the audience.

On the 10th of June, Fadi Skieker and Marcos Barbosa, will talk about one of the main issues of Pigafetta, the relation with the Other, the stranger that invades our space, and the use of fiction as an answer to the crude reality that exists around us. This Talk makes the voyage of findings and losses between Syria and Portugal, a conversation with clarity and shadows, something close to theatre.

On the 8th of July it is time for the meeting between Manuel Furia and Marcos Barbosa. Manuel Furia did the music for several of Marcos Barbosa´s shows, including The Winter´s Tale and Pigafetta. It a Drama Per Musica meeting, where we go from 1525 to 1608, from Antonio Pigafetta to Shakespeare, and we change roles, read the text again and again, and rediscover the music inside the plays. Who plays what?

On the 9th we talk with Marta Wengoroviuos about audience involvement, and the creation of a community through tue use of word. With the help of Marcos Barbosa, we get into knowing the work of the artist, which touches some of the contents of our play, Pigafetta.
