Exposição Individual | 3 de Julho a 12 de Setembro

Hangar presents an exposition by João Onofre.

We present two works that explore sound as a fundamental component in works that center their attention between spiritual and conceptual traditions in art history.

The works presented in this exhibition all deal with ideas of celebration, implicit form, and sound as a principal actor in art.

Acousmatic sound is sound that we hear without knowing the source.

It is used in cinema and other institutions to create suspense.

This is an exhibition in which sound has the potential to create spaces in which poetry and action encounter cinematic and performative narratives.

The selected pieces both touch upon the celebration of sound and impolitic form. The Onofre video— VOX 201, highlights more recent work of musician and composer Noberto Lobo.
