Performance

Seeking to give birth to a new {no}SENSE of life, Laura Carvalho, finds your power in LAURA _ AkiÓ->. A latent figure that abuse of the humor and the playful, introducing herself in a powerful and fruitful way.

LAURA _ AkiÓ-> means in Portuguese, Laura here, what means that, Laura is, where she is – “IamwhereIam”

Starting from the concept of  BEING , the basis of Western philosophy introduced by Socrates, and immortalized in the phrase, “to be or not to be, that is the question” in Hamlet, Shakspere. The artist begins a process of self-knowledge, or better, a self-generated process. This process of creation of yourself comes out in the end, being an action of constant subversion of the idea that you make out of yourself.

Characterized by the use of her unique hat, LAURA _ AkiÓ->is Laura Carvalho being beyond herself. A figure not a character of the artist, which assumes her own trans(IN)disciplinary didactic and an esthetic based on the squalid. Through her performances and actions LAURA _ AkiÓ->, proposes the symbolic weaving of new lines of thoughts, claiming for an alchemical purity intrinsic in all of us.

Incorporating her figure, the artist, exercised the multitude of her being. A singular mutant way, that inhabits, affects and is affected by the World. Blind spot that start from the “performance scene” to lightly touch the polarities of rationality.
