O projecto que Susana Mendes Silva apresentará no EMPTY CUBE, no próximo dia 7 de Dezembro de 2012, foi especialmente concebido para este evento que terá uma apresentação única e irrepetível. Este projecto vai ser realizado nas instalações do Colégio das Artes da Univerisdade de Coimbra, Portugal. Coimbra tem uma das universidades mais antigas da Europa, um lugar reconhecido pela qualidade da sua academia, mas também pela sua presença constante na luta pela democracia no decorrer do séc. XX, mais acentuadamente durante a ditadura salazarista.
O trabalho de Susana Mendes Silva integra uma componente de investigação, e de prática arquivistíca, que se traduz em obras cujas referências históricas e políticas se materializam em exposições, acções e performances através dos mais diversos meios de produção. O seu universo contempla e recontextualiza contextos sociais diversos sem perder de vista a singularidade do indivíduo. A sua intimidade psicológica ou a sua voz são inúmeras vezes veículos de difusão e recepção de mensagens poéticas e políticas que convocam e reactivam a memória dos espectadores.
O título da obra, “69-12”, integra um subtítulo: “continua o diálogo do silêncio”, numa alusão temporal à crise académica de Coimbra em 1969 (em que a revolta dos estudantes é a face pública de um país amordaçado em doloroso contrangimento dictatorial. Simultaneamente, “69-12”, transporta-nos para o ano que agora finda e que se sente como uma época de liberdade ambígua. O projecto da artista vai recuperar, pela palavra dita, a memória deste passado recente numa relação estreita com a memória confusa dos tempos que vivemos.

The project Susana Mendes Silva will bring to EMPTY CUBE on December 7th 2012 was especially conceived for this event, which consists of a single, unrepeatable presentation. This project will take place at the premises of the College of the Arts of Coimbra University, Portugal. Coimbra possesses one of the oldest universities in Europe, a place known for its academic reputation, as well as for its constant presence in the struggle for democracy throughout the 20th century, most importantly during the Estado Novo dictatorship.

Susana Mendes Silva's work incorporates elements of research and archival practice that lead to the creation of pieces whose historical and political references become visible as exhibitions, actions and performances that employ a wide variety of media. Her universe considers and reframes different social contexts without ever losing track of the individual's uniqueness. Her psychological intimacy and her voice are often the means for the diffusion and reception of poetic and political messages that call upon the viewers' memories, reactivating them. 
The piece's title, '69-12', includes a sub-title: 'continua o diálogo do siléncio' [the dialogue of silence continues], which alludes to the 1969 Coimbra academic crisis (in which the students' revolt gave voice to a country oppressed by painful dictatorial restraints). At the same time, '69-12' takes us to the present year, now nearing its end, which is felt to be a time of uncertain freedom. This artist's project will use the spoken word to recover the memory of that recent past, in close connection with the confused memory of our present.

Second Episode of The Mews Radio Programme Series:
Beatriz Albuquerque
Sound Sculpture: A Poet in New York


The Mews Radio Programme Series is a curatorial project, by Manuela São Simão, started in October 2012. It aims to present different possibilities of work for Radio.
The second episode, by Beatriz Albuquerque,  will be presented in the shape of a sound sculpture at The Mews Common Room as well as will be broadcasted on Radio platforms for which the piece was also specifically conceived.
The NYC based Portuguese visual and performance artist Beatriz Albuquerque was challenged to create a sound piece for The Mews Radio Programme Series inspired by the theme of silence. Her response to this invitation comes in the "shape" of a "Sound Sculpture: A Poet in New York", coming in continuous to her sculpture score sound series and her Project "A Poet in New York" that started in 2010.
This sound piece is a recording of a 3-D sculpture score with 1 inch. The sculpture is an exact proportional replica of the artist's body in the contra torso position (a reference to classical Greek sculptural form), while wearing a costume part of her performance "A Poet in New York".

Presentation in The Mews Common Room: 
8th December from 17 - 21

The first radio transmission of the piece will be on 9th December from Mobile Radio Project at the 30th Bienal de São Paulo:
17:40 - UK time, 15:40 - Brazilian time
