Corpo - Possibilidade e Interpretação Biográfica
Seminário – Abordagens biográficas, memória e histórias de vida
The aim of this presentation is to demonstrate how body-representations offers an opportunity for its visual interpretation from a biographical point of view, enhancing, on one hand, the image own narrative dynamics, and on the other hand the role of the body as a place of incorporation of experiences as well as a vehicle mediating the individual interaction with the world. Perspective founded in the works of the artists Helena Almeida and Jorge Molder, who uses the self-representation as expression of these incorporated (lived) experiences. In an important discursive construction and structuring their narrative identity through the visual creation, the artists enable the other with moments of sharing knowledge, creativity and subjectivity, contributing also to the construction of the contemporary cultural and social imagery.
