Things We Do for Love transversal visit with Mara Fortes.

The purpose of this visit is to investigate the extra-visual dimension of cinema, based on the idea of the “fissure of the image”, inspired by the concept of kintsugi that is addressed in Things We Do for Love.

Through exercises in the exhibition space of direct experience and a brief capsule of historical references, we will explore how this audiovisual installation awakens auditory, proprioceptive (the brain’s ability to recognize the muscles of the body in space), and intuitive intelligence. The visit is an invitation to be undisciplined spectators, to stretch time, fold space, feel the image, and navigate the multiverse of cinema —to grasp what overflows from the screen, sculpts stories and suspends the parameters that define our everyday reality.
