The idea of ressumption pervades the work of Carlos Noronha Feio. Trying to reach point zero, a video performance presented by the artist at Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa, reinforces this idea. In the installation, where a red aura creates a frame for the performance, we are the observer of an act of deconstruction, the one of trimming a tree. The extreme cut leaves us alone with the tree trunk. Like a metaphor, the destructive human strength tries to start all over again. The experience of resumption, the belief in the capacity of reorganization and of civilized revitalisation, are the basis of this action.
