Ai, Desculpe! is an invitation to enter a cathartic place.
Together with the voice of Leonor Arnaut, Maria Paz presents an installation & performance in which orgasmic, scatological and free creatures gather, inviting those with whom they cross to nurture the creation of fluid places and the construction of their freedom through dreaming.
Maria Paz lives and works in Lisbon, where she graduated in sculpture. Her work is mainly based on the search for the emancipated body through ceramics, but also with other materials she creates and finds universes of dialogue for gender freedom. She has been exhibiting since 2020 between Lisbon and Porto, namely at Florida Studio Flowers (2020); APO=Aposentadoria (2021); Livraria Zé dos Bois (2022) and Espaço Mira (2022).
Coming from a background that moved between jazz and improvised music, she seeks the flexibility to explore the voice in different contexts and aesthetics. She collaborates with artists from various universes, where she crosses the vocal space with other areas of creation. She has projects that enable her exploratory path as singer and composer, to highlight Chão Maior (“Drawing Circles”, 2021), Fumo Ninja (“Olhos de Cetim”, 2022), Living With a Couple, Leonor Arnaut & Ricardo Martins (“Breathing Waterline”, 2022).
