NO MEANING brings together a random selected group of artists, working in

different media but that all are related to a sculptural practise in its broadest sense.

The title of the show is borrowed from a paragraph of Clarice Lispector's work

Um sopro de vida; -“Im painting a picture with the name No Meaning. They

are random things-objects and beings that dont have anything to do with one another, like a butterfly and a sewing machine”


The desired context of NO MEANING is to show works that do not necessarily

have anything to do with each other, they dont hold the same cultural value

nor do they work with the same concepts. The works and the artists in the

show exist within our time. They are all part of the same echo of history.


NO MEANING carries a notion of recalcitrance; it wants to be uncooperative and

resisting the upper hand of cultural evaluation in and of our time, here and

now. Therefore the spatial becomes very important. It acts as a ghost, a

spectral event, where the repetition of time within the space appears the

same, however the time within that space only creates a notion of the alike

even if and when it is not.
