Description of project
Life is out there is a text-art sculpture that was included in a curatorial project developed by the post-graduate students in Curatorial Studies of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. The title of the exhibition was picked from the name of the work. Life is out there was an exhibition reflecting about the possibilities and roles of art to represent old and new worlds, questioning the idea of simulacrum that hostages the everyday. It explores how systems of representation create different forms of spectators and participants, and how this shift in attention to the systems of representation favours a sense of distance from existence.
