From October 17, the Serralves Museum and NOVO BANCO present an exhibition of works by Tiago Madaleno, winner of the 2017 edition of the NOVO BANCO REVELATION Prize.
The Prize is an initiative of NOVO BANCO and the Serralves Foundation, which has already distinguished more than 48 artists and aims to encourage artistic creation and production by young Portuguese artists, aged up to 30, based on a logic of dissemination, launch and support for all artists who explore the medium of photography.
Tiago Madaleno (Vila Nova de Gaia, 1992) was chosen by a jury, presided by João Ribas, Deputy Director and Senior Curator of the Serralves Museum and whose other members were Andrea Lissoni, curator of video and photography at the Tate Modern in London; Alessio Antoniolli, Director of Gasworks & Triangle Network, London; Ricardo Nicolau, deputy to the director and curator of Serralves Museum and Filipa Loureiro, curator of Serralves Museum. The winner was chosen from a group of four finalists, which also included artists Ana Barata Martins, Diogo Bolota and Henrique Loja. The four finalists use photography to question its meanings and possibilities in contemporary art.
With the project presented to the jury, Tiago Madaleno proposes to reflect on the relationship between photography and temporality, invoking the presence of the body in the process of producing images. Using an installation based on several devices that explore deviated use of the photographic vocabulary, Clepsydra (the Madaleno project) questions the conditions of visibility of photography, in particular the processes used to produce photographs and the use of the index as a working tool.
The published catalogue of the 2017 edition of the NOVO BANCO REVELATION Prize documents projects by the four finalists, not only the projects presented to the competition, but also previous and / or current works. Revealing different artistic practices that intersect with sculpture, design, installation or performance, Tiago Madaleno, Ana Barata Martins, Diogo Bolota and Henrique Loja all affirm the vitality of photography and the central place that it occupies in contemporary artistic practice, as demonstrated in the written interviews provided in response to questions proposed by Ricardo Nicolau, Deputy to the Director of Serralves Museum and member of the jury.
