Rui Aleixo

acção de longa duração; projecto de instalação

More than the wall resulting from the juxtaposition of postcards – apparently identical, but individualized in the back – the longdrawn action of the installation (by the artist) and subsequent disinstallation (by the visitor) are the resulting image in Wall. The standardized form undergoes constant transformation from the start of the installation until nothing remains of it except its memory and documentation. This Project works like a machine in which all gears are visible. In the room the materials to perform the activity are gathered and the production cost for each pattern module is clearly indicated. The visitor can choose the portions (postcards) he/she wants to remove from the wall and contribute accordingly so the artist ceases to be the patron. Once it has been completely taken apart, the work will have zero cost for the artist.
