Julião Sarmento
URBAN CORPO

September 29 - October 17, 1997
The Project Gallery presents an installation using a video work by Julião Sarmento.

A presentation in the gallery will include a montage of several dimensions of indoors everyday life in a large-scale projection and a still-like image of compressed time in small with a reproduction of his private room.

As young man there was no notable fineness to my features. Blurry eyes, a sparse head of hair, a vague swelling of the belly. I check myself in the mirror. I am starting to get old. But again, I was already old when I was young... I spend my days in this house and my nights in this room. Sometimes it seems there is no way out ... And also this ever present fear... The honey pot sits on the table. The fly is flying in circles, and circles, and circles attracted by the smell of the honey until it finally falls, dizzy and exhausted, on the floor. As young woman there was a notable fineness to my features. Clear eyes, a thick head of hair, a beautiful curve of the belly. I check myself in the mirror. I am starting to get old.

Julião Sarmento stayed at the CCA Kitakyushu as professor of the Research Program from September 1 through 30.
