Title
Phenomenological reflexions about young contemporary art : survival forms in ines moura's artworks.
Author
Abstract
This article examines a set of artworks produced by the visual artist Ines Moura, which are two photographs from the series called Paisagens | Landscapes (2012); three photographs from the study Our relationship explained by nature #1 (2012); and the installation and site-specific Herbarium in loco (2011). The motives and themes of the artworks, such as ruins, an ivy that spreads its roots over a wall, vegetation that overcomes a construction and plants, leaves and branches that occupy a space of concrete, are the basis for the interpretations explored in this paper. Along with the tension between vegetation and constructions, this paper presents reflections about being a 'young' artist in the circuit of contemporary art. Ines, a graduated painter, thinks and 'portrays' her motives, as well as the world she lives in. In the form of works and their motives, it is possible to find vestiges of the margin, the tension and the survival of organisms. Thus, survival is a key notion present in the artworks that are the basis to interpret the situation of the so-called 'young artist'. We reflect here, therefore, on the way in which the work is presented, its content and the context of contemporary art.
