Published by BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE on the occasion of the exhibition Never Odd or Even.
Never odd or even is a text-spaced exhibition that unfolds in mental and architectural chapters through perspectives created by textual artworks. The artworks presented derive from Concrete Poetry, Dadaist and Futurist Manifestos, as well as techniques of mind mapping. The exhibition is shaped as a book, formatted in spatial chapters that invite the visitors to become the co-authors. Imaginary space is rendered tangible through text and movement. Artworks appear as wall text, projection, spoken, enacted and filmed prose, activating the architectural space in ways that amplify the meaning of the words and the worlds inside.
