    Information

    Sérgio Taborda
    Vila Nova de Poiares, Portugal, 1958. Lives and works in Lisbon and Berlin.

    Sérgio Taborda’s practice has been developed in parallel with the activity of study and investigation, occurring interceptions between them. Currently, he is an artist-researcher resident at Arsenal – Institut for film and video-art film, in Berlin (within a post-doctoral investigation scholarship by Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia – FCT), researching in the film and video archives.

    Questions related with image perception, more specifically with the notion of event, are central lines. Most recent video works, presented at Cinemateca Portuguesa, Lisbon, incorporate certain elements: a short duration; the projection in a cinema room; the viewing in sessions; the sequence; the interval.

    Taborda started showing his works, in sculpture and drawing, in the mid 80s, concentrating in site-specific installations with the musician Luís Bragança Gil, exploring the connection among drawing, sculpture, image and sound. At the end of the 90s, his practice is orientated by other concerns, starting from the international symposiums of drawing, residencies in the village of Feital where the artists work with drawing, in a close relation with the place. There he produces a body of work in drawing and video which are the origin of a renovation of his way of doing things, concentrated now on in those mediators – drawing and video.
