“Tornar-se verbo” is a multimedia installation by the artist José Manuel Ruiz that deals with the intrinsic paradox of language: its power as a weapon and the impossibility of mastering it, since it always has a surplus. Such excess is also attributed to art, in a Becoming verb that is provoked by the written word and by narration interrupted by noise and contrast. A coitus interruptus that aims to confront the spectator with the complexity that dwells in what we really believe to direct and govern.

Flowers and liturgy from ceramics by José Manuel Gomes


Funchal Museum of Sacred Art from 21st June


Highlighting the importance of altar vases as elements that value and exalt flowers in the liturgical context, the reading proposed in the new MASF exhibition integrates an important set of contemporary artistic ceramics by sculptor José Manuel Gomes.
