Com o entendimento de que qualquer coisa autónoma e com uma função corporal é um órgão, Mota criou a sua série “Órgãos”, incluindo Bone (Osso). A obra foi concebida como parte de uma peça de performance íntima na qual Mota se envolveu numa grande folha de papel, incubando-se, qual um embrião num útero. Ela criou então Bone a partir do papel utilizado na performance, criando volume e textura com bordados. A obra foi desenvolvida ao longo de um período de tempo, tendo sido iniciada em 2016 e concluída em 2020.

With the understanding that anything self-contained and with a bodily function is an organ, Mota created her ‘Organs’ series, including Bone. The work was conceived as part of an intimate performance piece in which Mota wrapped herself in a large piece of paper, incubating like an embryo in a womb. She then created Bone from the paper used in the performance, creating volume and texture with embroidery. The work was developed over a period of time, having been initiated in 2016 and completed in 2020.

    Literature:
  • Luísa Mota (n. 1984, Portugal) tem um mestrado em Escultura do Royal College of Art, Reino Unido (2013) e uma licenciatura em Belas-Artes e Estudos Críticos do Goldsmiths College da Universidade de Londres, Reino Unido (2007). Na sua obra, Mota incentiva o público a pensar para além do seu contexto imediato: imaginar a si próprio como parte de um ecossistema que se estende além do tempo e do espaço. De acordo com Mota, isto exige uma revolução cultural e psicológica. A artista reconhece a dificuldade que esta ideia apresenta, pois a nossa perceção intuitiva do mundo demonstra que o nosso ambiente é algo que nos é externo, separado pela pele. Mota espera colmatar esta lacuna com a sua obra. As exposições mais conhecidas de Mota incluem Natureza Delicada, Galeria Nuno Centeno, Porto (2021); Subi a construção como se fosse máquina, Fundação Manuel António da Mota, Porto (2020); Saint Fanta, inauguração para Pedro Almodóvar/Jorge Galindo, Museu Amadeo Souza-Cardoso, Amarante (2021); Liste Art Fair Basel, Galeria Nuno Centeno, Basileia (2018); e Trabalho Capital, Centro de Arte Oliva, São João da Madeira (2019).

    Luísa Mota (b. 1984, Portugal) holds an MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, UK (2013) and a BA in Fine Art & Critical Studies from Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK (2007). In her work, Mota encourages audiences to think beyond their immediate context: to imagine themselves as part of an ecosystem that extends beyond time and space. According to Mota, this demands for a cultural and psychological revolution. She notes the difficulty this idea presents, as our intuitive perception of the world denotes that our environment is something outside of us, separated by the skin. Through her work, Mota hopes to close this gap. Notable exhibitions of Mota’s include Delicate Nature, Galeria Nuno Centeno, Porto (2021); Subi a construção como se fosse máquina, Fundação Manuel António da Mota, Porto (2020); Saint Fanta, opening performance for Pedro Almodóvar/Jorge Galindo, Museu Amadeo Souza Cardoso, Amarante (2021); Liste Art Fair Basel, Nuno Centeno Gallery, Basel (2018); and Trabalho Capital, Centro de Arte Oliva, São João da Madeira (2019).
