Lisboa| Dia 2 – Ainda aí Estão? [ Lisbon | Day 2 – Is it Still There?]

Dia 2 e a expectativa de saber se as imagens ainda estão nas paredes, se seguiram o seu rumo e que rumo é esse.

À chegada ao primeiro local, verifico que apenas algumas das imagens se mantêm nas paredes. As restantes descolaram-se ou foram descoladas e estão agora no chão. Opto por as manter aí. A partir do momento que as pendurámos, deixámos de ter qualquer influência sobre elas. Ganharam vida e, por mais que me custe vê-las no chão, tenho que as deixar seguir esse curso. Deixaram de nos pertencer. Pertencem ao espaço onde estão.

Day 2 and the expectation of knowing if the images are still on the walls, or if it just run its course and if so, which course is it.

When I arrived at the first spot, I saw that only some of the images remained on the walls. The rest unsticked by itself or somebody took it off, so it’s now on the floor. I chose to keep it there. Since the moment we hang it on, we stopped having any influence on the images. It gained its on life and, as much as I don’t like to see it on the floor, I have to let it  run its course. It doesn’t belong to us anymore. It belongs to the space.

Na 2ª parede, tudo permanece igual… ou quase.

On the 2nd wall, everything is the same… or almost…

No local 3, apenas uma imagem se mantinha no lugar. Começo a procurar e vejo pelo chão as imagens um pouco perdidas. Terão sido arrancadas do local? Espalhadas pelo chão? Terá sido o vento, a gravidade? Começo a pensar se não se deveríamos colar no seu lugar as fotografias das imagens que estão espalhadas pelo chão, que agora tiro… será um caminho a seguir?

On the spot 3, only one image continues on the wall. I start searching for the others and find out that the images are scattered on the floor, all around. Were they ripped from it? Spread all around? Was it the wind, the gravity? I start wondering if we shouldn’t hang on its place the photographs that I am taking now, of the images just laying on the ground… I wonder, can it be a route to dollow?

No local 4 aguardava-me… o nada! Roubadas, melhor dizendo (roubado parece-me mal quando acabei de dizer que já não nos pertencem) foram retiradas do local. Apenas sobrou uma, enegrecida…

[ENG]

On the spot 4 what awaited me was… nothing! Stolen, I should better say (as stolen seens not a proper term after I said that the images don’t belong to us any more), they were removed from the site. Only one left, on the floor, dirty…
