Jardim Ultravioleta

Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session: Open Call – Screening of competition finalists

In the shadow of your mind there are new objects that cannot exist for her.
The ears that I have don’t listen.
The eyes that I carry don’t see.
Do I have something in my hands? No. They are clean.
A piece of glass, and your heart closes in a corner.
I’m being chased. Chased! The images of the world move, like chess pieces, obeying a strategy destined to capture me.
Life is a deposit of death.
I carry a grave behind my head.
Thanks to it, I have memory.

On July 12, 2007 two telephoto lenses belonging to two Reuters journalists were misidentified as two RPG weapons.

In Ultraviolet Garden, the image goes beyond its documentary condition, its consumption results in a strategy game mediated by the social media that organize reality as if it were a layer of make-up. Society is a stage that the world receives and sends on the same wavelength.
