,Towards an Emancipated Other.
Instruction Manual Number One: Washing the flag for a peaceful revolution‘

Live performance via Skype

Carlos Noronha Feio has a diverse practice that includes actions, performance, video, drawing, painting, photography and installation as research into cultural, local and global identity. He frequently adopts culturally significant images, locations and symbols as a form of creative interference with meaning, and demonstrates the almost arbitrary nature in which cultural significance is adopted or interpreted.
Noronha Feio uses improvisation, repetition and the conflicts of juxtaposition to explore issues of communicating with otherness and the inherent fluidity of meaning. His work is alternately charmingly seductive, profound and irreverently playful, yet ultimately a record of Noronha Feio’s attempts to explore and then to understand other perspectives and cultural viewpoints and how he might be able to connect with them.
