The second Tráfico invitee will bring one approach about questions
regarding identity, borders, traveling and territory.
Using mixed technique, Abraão Vicente (Assomada, 1980) refers to those
concepts remembering us of that moment when the traveler alters his own
condition to be a simple number in a piece of paper.

The Passport, document issued by a nation which identifies us towards it
tell us of a cultural and geographical belonging loaded with an historical heritage,
which keeps us away from the space beyond borderline.

No limiar shows us the inner existential confrontation – one mental space
closer schizophrenia. The fragmentation of a whole being, which is
nevertheless confronted with its own existence.
The result is a new document, where the several identities take part and expresses
revolt – through text in the traveler’s original language or in a body exorcism,
which is itself fragmented.

Estranged from the “bureacratic machine” which validates or invalidates, the traveler
without knowing it, triggers several events which will fetch him, as a number, from a
global space where he wants to be part of.

Until August 30th, at Espaço Fábulas.
