2014 level_02 Performance by Tomaz Hipólito (created for Palácio Pombal - Saturday, May 10th 2014, 17h)
Tomaz Hipólito presents the project 2014 level_01_02_03 in three distinct exhibition spaces and moments in Lisbon, between late March and mid-June. In these three performative actions, unique and short-lived, the artist explores a common matrix that differs in its various formulations regarding: the design inscribed in space; matter, and the dematerialization; color, which acquires cumulative symbolic of an action to the next; the social mores of receipt of the work inherent in a museum, a cultural nonprofit association and a gallery, and governing the previous variables. Through the act of measuring and drawing traced in every situation Tomaz Hipólito suggests impressions as stiffness or flexibility organic, delimitation or involvement, and other qualities revealed by the context of its presentation. This trilogy is based on a site specific gestural and visual grammar of extreme simplicity and that in their complementarity, wins a razor-sharp efficiency.
