Summary / Comment

Catalog about the homonymous piece by João Maças de Carvalho Archive and Melancoly, a video work about the various expressions of time, which gains representation in the concept of Archive, and that, in certain moments, opens space to states such as melancoly and new perspectives of understanding. The structure of this artistic creation is based on a subtle binary and synaesthetic discourse, which mirrors the plight of the research carried out by José Maçãs de Carvalho on the texture of time, its materialization and the reverse. An epistemological work of poetic nature.
