This is a past event.
Transforming Energy presents the latest work by the Berru collective and investigates the potential of the oceans as an element capable of responding to the challenges that the energy crisis and the management of natural resources pose to us today.
The synergies and challenges that the encounter between the biological and technological worlds presents have been at the center of attention for this collective. Their works tend to combine living and non-living structures, whose interaction allows us to understand the complexity of these same structures and speculate on their potential collaborations in creating sustainable systems.
Berru is the name of the collective of creators founded in Porto, in 2015, which includes Bernardo Bordalo, Rui Nó and Sérgio Coutinho. This collective focuses on the synergies and challenges posed today by the meeting of the biological and technological worlds. Their works tend to combine living and non-living structures, and their interaction enables us to understand the complexity of those structures and speculate about their potential collaborations in creating sustainable systems. For the exhibition to be held at Culturgest Porto – within the Portugal-France Season, and in close collaboration with French structure COAL, the collective is preparing a work that re-evaluates and seeks alternatives to the ways in which we have been using the devices we call batteries. The exhibition will then travel in France, to Clermont-Ferrand, where it will be showcased at Videoformes from 17th to 26th of September 2022. A crossed conference associated to the exhibition will be held both in Porto and Clermont-Ferrand.
