Sao Luis international residency project

Located in the tidal River Meira, Meira investigates “becoming” as a new way of learning, observing the connections between artwork, matter, unstable environments, and human/non-human impact.

The light is used to create a disjunction in our concept of time. There is an eeriness in the hushed tones between day and night, a silence in the environment that evokes contemplation. In this sense of movement between day and night, this uncanny feeling becomes clear in the work through the illuminative glow.

This is not a supernatural experience, but a detachment from what is normal; a strangeness that can leave us with a sense of disempowerment. It’s a state of disquiet where we become vulnerable.
