Jonathan Saldanha’s Swarming Decay is a multi-channel audio installation. A swarm is formed from the sound tracks of everyday life. Human-made and mineral-extraction objects are activated by animal properties, moving through the air of this once active carpentry shop, in predation games.
To be presented at Carpintarias de São Lázaro, this installation is part of The Invisible Exhibition curated by Delfim Sardo that will be opened at Culturgest, from September 25 to January 10. From November 26, tickets purchased to view the exhibition at Culturgest will give visitors access to Carpintarias de São Lázaro and vice versa.
