This is an agency for the support of legal migration, inviting American citizens to embark in the Portuguese Dream. This was an artistic intervention done in partnership with Zé dos Bois gallery for the exhibition “After the Carnations” at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The produced form, that people had to fill out, aimed to gather curricular information on the interested party, and acted at the same time as a satire to the kind of questionnaires that non-US citizens are asked to fill out when they enter the country. This project was presented in the summer of 2001, in San Francisco, a few weeks before 9/11.

The theme of the exhibition held at the hall and corridors of the Berlaymon Building (the European Commission headquarters in Brussels) was Migrations. In order to define the format of the catalogue, we used the standard proportions of flags, and we also employed a grid that allowed a strange mobility for both text and images, as if they were never in their exact, proper place.

Go to Frisco. This is an appropriately inappropriate title – the people of San Francisco simply abhor the word “Frisco” and only uncool outsiders use it still – but it just fits like a glove this whole project: a platform to present peripheral cities’ non-profit, artist-run spaces alternative to the largest art production centres, such as The Physics Room (Christchurch – New Zealand), IT Park (Taipei – China), YYZ Artists Outlet (Toronto – Canada), and Zé dos Bois (Lisbon, Portugal).

For the exhibition presented at the Southern Exposure, Zé dos Bois explored the geographical affinities of Lisbon and San Francisco by taking to that also hilly city a video observatory, a zdbmüzique à la carte and a handful of specifically produced net-art projects, with one a day presentation. The main image, used for the posters and the site, is a homage to/quote of/appropriation from Portuguese master designer Sebastião Rodrigues with a little sprinkle from Victor Moscoso-inspired West Coast psychadelia.

French Invasions, Part II. After a first exhibition at the Zé dos Bois gallery by a group of French artists, this second wave occupied the bulky building from a XVII century prison cum fish conserves manufacturer in the area of Santos, Lisbon. This became at one time the exhibition space, the artists’ residency and clubhouse. The graphic project reflects this experience: an art and life orgy.

Direct mailing for the 5th anniversary party for the delicatessen with the best view in Lisbon. The party was sponsored by two classics: Perrier Jouet – Belle Époque Champagne and Michel Cluziel Bombons. We decided to use the delis previously printed paper bags as support. And threw in a third ingredient the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland that was still actively regurgitating lava during the production of the Invitation. The information prepressed into a rapid prototyping cliché and the bags were printed on a windmill letterpress.

Is the name of a gypsy commune founded by a family – The Monteiros – that bought a plot of land near Sanguedo, Santa Maria da Feira. They set permanent camp at this location thus interrupting their nomadic nature.
The film director, Marco Martins invited us to create the visual identity for a collaborative cine-theatrical street performance that would take place in this commune. The event had various participants such as coreographers, actors and vídeo artists and was integrated in a street performance festival.
The contents were quite powerful: incredible photography and uncanny poetic vídeos that revealed the cultural autonomy of the community – the people. For the web site we decided to emphasize the visual richness of the commune by combining various portraits and interiors with a naive lettering culled from the walls of the precarious housing.
The catologue is very site specific, so we integrated a programe in the form of a map. The central image of the unfolded cover is a genealogical tree arranged in a wheel structure re-appropriated from the Romani ethnic group flag. This idea of autonomy is reinforced by the chakra shaped tree in a back drop of sky and land. Thus revealing one of the many geographic origins – Índia.
