A mash-up of data merges into a controlled intuitive randomness. By trial and error frames of meaning occur, configurations worth retaining. Devoid of all but the smell of things, the mundane image moves towards pure construction, towards concreteness. Information is shattered with the highest constructive purpose. Ambiguous compositions occur, either exposing matter as a catalogue of volatile surfaces or casting sudden and improbable volumes. Beyond its form as an exhibition, publication or set of images, Sidewinder is above all a flux, a stream where moments of a drift appear to crystallize.
Galeria Pedro Alfacinha is thrilled to announce Sidewinder. Pedro Henriques transfers to our gallery space a selection of fifteen images from the second incarnation of his homonymous book. This show runs parallel to Tempo perdido no Porto #2, an exhibition that marks the end of Henriques’ one-year residency at Oporto, in Lisbon.
