Serralves Foundation Gardens – Arboreto
Following the artistic residency held in coproduction with Teatro Municipal do Porto Rivoli . Campo Alegre, NEC invited Ben Evans to expand his proposal for the specific context of Serralves em Festa 2015. It will be an audio path which you can access during the defined schedule.
As a visitor to Serralves em Festa, you are invited to meander the grounds, listening to a description of a figure – maybe emerging from the landscape, walking beside you, becoming visible and disappearing again. Someone then begins to describe you – but they are mistaken. They have you confused with someone else. Or do they? This work by artist Ben Evans plays with presences that are real but only imagined, behaviors predicted and never actualized, performed and forgotten. Its fragility points to the power of those imperceptible forces that guide our very movements.
