Every month Marginalia invites an artist, curator or project to provide a series of images that will serve as the background of Terremoto, in relation to their practice and current interests. At the end of each month, the identity of our guest is revealed and the whole series of images is unveiled.
For the 26th edition of Marginalia Project, the artist Bruno Mendonça stretches out his research about the concept of extended text and presents 31 images from his personal archive. The artist constantly uses this archive during his spoken word performances, publications and online projects—with interventions in the internet. By using the idea of hypertext, Mendonça creates a unique narrative with this image collection. Generally speaking, we can say that his artwork involves social, political and economic issues establishing a direct connection with culture and media. By doing it, the artist pushes some concepts about language and communication. He places himself as an agent and an etc-artist, working as an art critic, and educator too.
