Reflexão | Sinopse (geral do projecto)

Information about the LUMIERE event:

"Early estimates indicate that 140,00 people took to the streets of Durham to enjoy the 35 artworks (...) LUMIERE is brought to you by Artichoke - best known for creating unforgettable events like La Machine in Liverpool or Antony Gormley's One & Other." 1

Information about the Alexandre Costa`s UTOPIA (the light/shadow installation), produced by ARTICHOKE (London) for LUMBER (Durham) United Kingdom:

"UTOPIA sits on the rooftop of the derelict former ice rink. Once a pleasure palace, Costa's flickering installation appears to question the original purpose of the building. The piece is inspired by Thomas More's work of fiction, written in 1516, in which he talks about the idea of the 'island' as both liberating and isolating depending on your viewpoint. UTOPIA creates a similar paradox depending on how you view the work as it rolls through a shifting sequence. With a constantly changing perspective, the word UTOPIA is only ever fully lit when the sequence aligns. Will you catch it?" 2

The artist wants to thank the SUPPORT/COOPERATION of

- in Portugal -
Miguel Ângelo (technical design)
Francisco Laranjeira (app/animation design)
Mário Caeiro (curator)

- in United Kingdom -

Helen Marriage and Nicky Webb (directors/curators, artichoke)
Hannah Standen (associate production)
Cathy Hirschmann (general management)
Susie Thornberry (communication / assistant production)

and to all LUMIERE and ARTICHOKE team, involved in the management, production, communication and presentation of UTOPIA in Durham, U. K.

Information about the artist

"The artist and curator Alexandre A. R. Costa was born in 1973 in Braga, but lives in Porto, Portugal. He works across a variety of media from illustrations and photography to video and performance. He has co-founded a number of artistic spaces in Porto, Portugal where he has also curated the activity at these spaces. His work is often concerned with a contemporary sense of disorder and transformation, disrupting the idea of linear communication systems, regularity, and the power of certainty." 3
