 *PREVIEW: *FRIDAY 23rd JUNE 7 - 9PM
*EXHIBITION DATES: *23rd JUNE- 30th AUGUST 2017




CORRESPONDENCES links a programme of nine exhibitions, presented in
Portugal, Spain, Germany and Malta, to an International Colloquium [Unknown
Recipient] held at Casa das Artes, Oporto.


A letter excerpt included in Jacques Derrida’s LA CARTE POSTALE (1980) is
taken as a reference for the CORRESPONDENCES project.

In this fragment, dated June 5 1977, Derrida says: “What I like most about
postcards is that we do not know what is in front and what is back, here or
there, near or far, Plato or Socrates, face or reverse. Nor what is more
important - the image or the text or, within the text, the message, the
caption or the address.”
The postcard is taken as producer of subjectivity, process and life
experience, itself an agencement of CORRESPONDENCES, attempting not only to
explore its linguistic, grammatical and rhetorical character, but also the
use value it can acquire when integrated within a chain of possible
situations. A metaphor for equality, with no face or reverse, here or
there, image or text, the postcard exists in this traffic of sent,
received, registered, circumvented, returned, stolen, lost, anonymous,
confidential, inviolable correspondence.

CORRESPONDENCES also refers to connection, communication, relation, path,
journey, route, complementariness, reciprocity. Multiple forms, multiple
uses, setting ambivalences in motion, breaking with directions, departure
and arrival, beginning and end, artwork and space, signified and signifier.

Assuming that it becomes imperative to force language, to break it, to
disfigure it, to force concepts to say something else, this project adopts
the postcard as an open letter, with no secrets, no face or reverse, a
figure operating in speech, in a movement against the origin, establishing
the conditions of its impossibility.
