Diogo Evangelista. Homem irracional, 2016

Individual exhibition by Diogo Evangelista at ZDB

Zé dos Bois presents, between April 22 and June 24, the exhibition Espaços de Fluxos, by Diogo Evangelista. Integrated in BOCA – Biennieal of Contemporary Arts this exhibition presents the research that the artist has been developing around the seduction mechanisms and perceptual regimes of the contemporary image.

Espaço de Fluxos has as its central motto the figure of the human being and it explores ideas such as invisibility and introspection. The project is set up as a living organism, where the set of works presented, mostly never shown before, creates an environment that absorbs the public within it, through different sensory stimuli, creating an immersive experience. The title is appropriate from a homonymous text by Manuel Castells that describes a cultural typology of great abstraction and its dynamic interactions with digital media. The concept of ‘espaços de fluxos’ (‘space of flows’) conceptualizes the configurations of space and time that are established under the new technological paradigm, which, among other valences and characteristics, allows synchronous interactions at a distance.
