Portuguese artists opens exhibition in Fortes Vilaça Gallery
Highlight this Venice Biennale, Portuguese artists João Maria Gusmão and Pedro Paiva present photographs, bronze sculptures and films in 16mm, all recent or unpublished. Gusmão and Paiva explore references of existentialism in the philosophical tradition, metaphysical literature, as well as Alfred Jarry’s proto-surrealism. The exhibition takes its title from a philosophical question proposed by William Molyneux to John Locke about the recovery of sight. If a man born blind can feel the differences between shapes such as spheres and cubes, could he similarly distinguish those objects by sight if given the ability to see? This problem is mentioned by Locke in his An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, regarding the basis of knowledge and the mechanisms of thought in the human mind.
