GABRIELA GONÇALVES

Portugal 1984

It all began with a movement of demand that can not be explained and pushing toward the new. The reality becomes, I recognize and describe it in creations - images, words, drawings and performances.
There is so much that inspires us. Thinking about reality and their different ways of being.

I intend to touch on various topics - the notion of time and space that allow thinking about perception, sensations, the mind and the body. A new way of thinking and moving the body, the act of creating, and the transcendence of it all, to the encounter with something unified.
It must be said that these works exist only for the fact that everything that has been described was living in a body - mine - sometimes becoming manner and subject.
Through the body and its ability to create, I'm rescuing the sensitivity, in reflections always connected with the present and with the being that lives and creates reality, because I believe there is a link and a path to be explored between the body and artistic plasticity.
