Cadence
by Jorge Rocha

Gift? Healing? Opportunity? What do they talk about? In which country do they live? In a country where the elite manufactures the fashion ideas, idiots repeat them, politicians enforce them and victims accept.

Cadence is a performative action based on Jorge Rocha’s research about articles published in the Portuguese newspaper Expresso in the first semester of 2011, focusing on several codes related to the situation that the country is facing, in an experimental artistic approach to media messages.

It is a sequence that starts from the artist’s interest about the performative universes of the concrete action of cooking and its connections with the Digital Culture, integrating in this case messages that let us discuss political aspects of Portuguese culture.

Cadência was developed under the PRALAC – Anual projects in the LAC- Laboratório de Actividades Criativas and is promoted by Xerem.
