The Corner

Nomadic Settlers – Settled Nomads International Group Exhibition, Berlin, 2011

"The corner" is a long durational performance, by Márcio Carvalho, that reflects about mobility and art making. Carvalho aim to relate the etymology of such concepts with the Artist today's stretching capacity to engage and research possibilities of showing and/or adapting work to different art frames and cultural, social or political contexts, leading these same artists to a long-term exhaustion and a BURNOUT syndrome.

Carvalho aim, inside a boxing frame, to physically and conceptually perform the artist everyday struggle to keep on working and living inside transnational mobility systems.
