NOVO BANCO REVELAÇÃO 2014 - New Photography in Portugal
from 18 OCT 2014 to 11 JAN 2015
In the context of a competition, projects by four national artists were selected by an international jury. The artists were awarded production grants and the opportunity to have their works displayed in the Serralves Museum. This exhibition, which brings together the works that have been developed in the meantime, shows how the photographic and cinematic formats have been exploited by young Portuguese artists.

The jury – this year comprised by Maria Inés Rodriguez (Director of the Musée D´Art Contemporain in Bordeaux), Andre Bellini (Director of the Centre d´Art Contemporain in Geneva) and Joe Scotland (Director of Studio Voltaire in London) - unanimously selected the projects submitted by Patrícia Bandeira, Pedro Henriques, Sofia Lopes Borges, Lúcia Prancha.

Patricia Bandeira: Not otherwise specified
In Not otherwise specified - a multimedia installation that combines photography and video - Patricia Bandeira uses a real-life event (a group of Icelanders who adamantly confessed that they had committed a crime, although they couldn’t remember having committed it) in order to question the relationship between photography and the assumption of reality. Ultimately she aims to explore how coercive persuasion using images can affect our perception of reality. The artist wrote the following about this project: "[...] it is inspired by the ambiguity between reality-fiction, presence-absence, place - no place."


Pedro Henriques: Mixers
In Pedro Henriques’ project, images of an audio mixing table acquire special visual interest. Various visual distortions are applied to technical photographs of that object, which are then printed on cut wooden boards. According to the artist, "In a somewhat paradoxical manner, the project aims to elicit a sensation of being in front of an acoustic instrument that has tactile materiality" 


Sofia Lopes Borges: Cable Car
Sofia Lopes Borges will travel along the entire Portuguese border - from Caminha to Vila Real de Santo António - capturing the strange landscape that can be seen from our country. Europe proposes a portrait of Portugal, "showing the visible landscape of Europe"
 


Lúcia Prancha: Visions of Albinos 
Lúcia Prancha travels to the Island of Lençóis, in northeastern Brazil, to collect images and information to produce a mockumentary about a group of albinos who believe that they inhabit a land haunted by D. Sebastião since he disappeared in combat in the famous battle of Ksar El Kebir (1578). According to the artist, she used this research in order to "understand a common past and the current relationship (or absence thereof) between Portugal and Brazil"
