THE BOOK 4, inspirado no livro da escritora brasileira Clarice Lispector Água Viva, utiliza a água tanto no tema como na técnica. Para criar a obra, Moro pediu emprestadas palavras de Água Viva sobre a luta da autora com a criatividade. A vibrante escrita de Lispector é transformada pela artista. Entrelaçando as frases, as palavras transformam-se em borrões: desfocagem, rutura e transmutação, tudo em simultâneo. No entanto, a sua essência prevalece, orientando o público para conceitos que são centrais para a artista e para Lispector. Moro utilizou um espelho porque este símbolo figura significativamente no livro, que é interpretado como um objeto que pode refletir a sua personalidade mais íntima e impede o refúgio na introspeção.

THE BOOK 4, inspired by Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector’s book ‘Água Viva’ (‘Stream of Water’), uses water in both theme and technique. To create the work, Moro borrowed words from ‘Água Viva’ concerning the author’s struggle with creativity. Lispector’s vibrant writing is transformed by the artist. Interweaving the phrases, the words become blots: blurring, breaking, and transmuting all at once. However, their essence prevails, guiding audiences towards concepts that are central to the artist and to Lispector. Moro has used a mirror because this symbol features significantly in the book, which is interpreted as an object that can reflect one’s innermost personality and inhibits refuge in introspection.

    Literature:
  • Saskia Moro (n. 1967, Reino Unido) é licenciada em Belas-Artes pela Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Espanha (1993) e recebeu duas bolsas da Fundació Miró, Espanha (1995, 1996). A inspiração de Moro advém da literatura, da música e do grafismo. Usando estas partes integrantes das nossas vidas, Moro cria, através da repetição de técnicas gráficas, para refletir ondas de ritmo, um coração a bater, uma oração, ou mesmo um mantra. Os seus interesses temáticos residem no espaço e no tempo, bem como nas justaposições entre opostos: cheio e vazio, barulho e silêncio, alegria e tristeza. No trabalho de Moro, a água é um material flexível e abrangente que atravessa tudo, tal como as nossas palavras.
    Moro participou em várias exposições coletivas e individuais como Água Viva, Galeria Valbom, Lisboa (2021); Ausência, Galeria Valbom, Lisboa (2016); Landschappen van water en olijfolie, Clement, Amesterdão (2008); e Mareas, Galería Estiarte, Madrid (2001).

    Saskia Moro (b. 1967, United Kingdom) holds a BA in Fine Arts from Universidad Complutense of Madrid, Spain (1993) and received two grants from the Fundació Miró, Spain (1995, 1996). Literature, music, and graphics serve as inspirations to Moro. Using these integral parts of our lives, Moro creates by repeating graphic techniques to reflect waves of rhythm, a beating heart, a prayer, or even a mantra. Her thematic interests lie in space and time, as well as in the juxtapositions between opposites: full and empty, noise and silence, joy and sadness. In Moro’s work, water is a flexible, all-embracing material that permeates everything, just as our words do.
    Moro has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions as Água Viva, Galeria Valbom, Lisbon (2021); Ausência, Galeria Valbom, Lisbon (2016); Landschappen van water en olijfolie, Clement, Amsterdam (2008); and Mareas, Galería Estiarte, Madrid (2001).
