4 – 9 August
cafuné – you is a multimedia art project with a focus on exploring the relationship with the space we inhabit and how the perception of space changes depending on the experiences we have had. The project reveals the intimate story of the artist’s 6-month stay in Lisbon.
It reflects the perception and experience of feeling in love, the connection and subsequent separation, abandonment and how this relationship influences the perception of the space – of the room, the streets, the city.
This strong emotional experience of feeling of love and dependent on a person and their subsequent loss provides a pathway for self-reflection for the healing process, and with its process of understanding opens a shared sense of pain and compassion. In this emotional state the memories and images of the loved person fill every space of experience we dwell. It portrays a sentimental and pathetic image of the well-worn phrase of a person in love – “I see you everywhere”.
The aim of the project is to reveal the thoughts, feelings and experiences of a relationship that has been in secret. The intimate and private become public.
