Tropa Macaca / Portugal / 2021 / CS

On the same south coast where Gonçalo Velho is known to have walked, who described it in the 15th century as "covered with a very, very thick grove of cedars, sour cherries, white wood, beeches, laurels, heather, and other plants", appears Vai e vem, a sound and visual installation at a Skate Parque, on a bare fajã (small plains created by lava or landslides) a few meters from Ponta Delgada's airport. It's an intervention dedicated to transience and the relational dynamics between phenomena and ideas, which starts from the sensitive elements of that place, such as the erosion marks, the graffiti, the wind intensity, or the noise of the airplanes, to promote and outdoor experience of feeling intermittent placidity and communion. Visual and auditory suggestions are added to the landscape, inspired by gestures such as endemic reforestation, genealogy, or pretend painting, which in a distinct way animate invisible and subliminal movements of this island that come and go, in the mirage of the original, between past and present.
