“Saudade do Imaginário” brings together in the Central Nucleus of Taguspark, from July 5 to August 19, a set of works by the Malibu Ninjas, a pair of multidisciplinary artists from Lisbon who develop their activity both in the public and private spaces.
With free admission, the exhibition brings together painting, sculpture, digital art and drawing. The Malibu Ninjas explore the importance of artistic expression and how it can become eternal and identitarian in the artist’s work. They question the act of creation as a set of multiple decisions, which can be conscious or unconscious. They reflect on the process of deconstructing a work of art in order to understand the traces and ideas consciously produced, and the free and unconscious gestures that come out of the artist’s hand.
The curator, Beatriz Palma, recalls that “the collective was created in 2017, and assumes the ability to adapt to conceptual and material challenges that affirm its artistic versatility. Through a language of a surrealist, pop and psychedelic nature, a body of work is generated that highlights its individuality, inviting the visitor to enter a fictional universe that is based on experiences and issues, personal and collective, with which we deal daily.”
In a humorous tone, the Ninjas invoke in their works a celebration of life and a challenge to the human condition, with the intention of dematerializing our conceptions of worldly forms and beings. An exhibition not to be missed and that is part of the program of MAU – Museum of Urban Art, which aims to promote critical thinking and contribute to the well-being of those who visit and work in the City of Knowledge.
