Curator: Delfim Sardo
João Onofre (Lisbon, 1976) mostly known for his video artwork has nonetheless turned to many other art forms, such as, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance and sound works. The exhibition Once in a Lifetime [Repeat] goes through different aspects of his work focusing on the last 10 years and adds Untitled (zoetrope), a new work specifically designed for this occasion.
The exhibition is also inhabited by the presence of pop music as the carrier of a generational existentialism which is, paradoxically, so universal that can be subjectively and intimately confirmed.
The utmost strictness he applies to his various practices makes João Onofre’s production to seem to stir up a certain romantic irony to the beat of the return to the history of art great matters: tension, death, failure, love and, as a universal link, language.
The exhibition introduces the performance Box sized DIE featuring Cannibal Holocaust.
