The Logic of Irreconcilable Similarities, 2008

This series arised from a collaboration with architect, writer and curator of contemporary architecture at MoMA, Pedro Gadanho, and was first presented in a publication titled ‘Interiores’ as well as in an exhibited by the same title at Cristina Guerra Contemporary Art, Lisbon.
The book and exhibition brought together images and artworks by eight artists who responded to Gadanho’s built architectural projects: the houses, the spaces and the objects designed by the architect.
The photographs displayed in this gallery focus on the inner space of each construction.
These are psychological interiors and so demand a more heterogenous conception.
They are spaces that both engage and divide, threaten but also re-imagine and redefine our sense of home.
In establishing a network of connections and in drawing on the objects and the spaces’ metaphorical resonance, these images explore the relationship between reality and its referent, architecture and its iconography, language and the perceptive act.
