The Switch is thrilled to present for its 15th edition of the Cabinet de l’Art, ‘suck & blow’ by Carolina Pimenta.
Opening reception: Saturday 9th of March 2019, 6pm - 10pm
Carolina’s work has two distinct strands, on one hand the exploration and introspective journey of herself as a body, as much as the investigation of new territories and social interaction. These components are influenced and offer mutual contributions, in a reflexive process in search of liberations and exploration of the now. Our role within our culture is ever more questioned and shifting, photographing compulsively day-to-day/ night-to-night, she questions and examines the relationships between youth, the effects of technology, changes within our social dynamics and nature.
Born in Porto, Portugal, 1988, Carolina Pimenta graduated from Leeds arts university in visual communications. Lives and works in Lisbon.
The Switch is an Artist-run gallery born with the vocation to present young talents and emerging artists.
With its Cabinet de l’Art editions, The Switch reiterates with the European conceptualisation of cabinets of curiosities, which date back to the 15th century. Short-term exhibitions, reserved space with personalised attention, presenting the work of guest artists, performances and events.
Standing by its Artist-run gallery stigma, The Switch strives to give the Artists the opportunity of presenting their works in the up & rising Portuguese capital, outlining the role and position of Artists at the outskirt of a new era.
