This is the first exhibition of Alexandre Estrela at Travesía Cuatro. The pieces in this exhibition are suggestive of the invisible, the intangible or the elusive through concrete/absent matter.
The exhibition comprises three pieces. The central piece is Faca na Água [Knife in the Water] (2017), a video sculpture in which a single stretched cable forecasts a shadow on the projection. The second piece is Vidro Duplo [Double Glass] (2018), a video projection on a glass screen with a small contact speaker glued to its surface, a transducer that uses matter as a way to translate energy and amplify sound. The third and last piece is Impossible Object (2018) a print of a hand. It appears to hint at the latin derivation of ‘rare’, which is ‘rarus’, meaning ‘full of empty spaces’.
