João Onofre: Untitled (Orchestral)
Exhibition, MAAT, Lisbon, Portugal.
João Onofre presents a new site-specific performative installation conceived for the iconic Boiler room in the Power station building. This new multimedia work takes its cue from the history of the space as a key provider of light for the city of Lisbon but also as a showcase of the most advanced technology. The towering presence of the monumental boilers as well as the enormous bay windows was also a great source of inspiration.
Using the sun as both a source of light and energy, Onofre revisits the notion of the power station, this time using it as both stage and instrument.
