In March, the Baginski Gallery presents a specific and distinct project: an exhibition whose protagonists are five young emerging artists: André Romão, Bruno Cidra, Gonçalo Sena, Lúcia Prancha e Pedro N. Marques.
The Baginski Gallery entered the Portuguese market with the strong believe in representing new values in the contemporary art. The present exhibition takes this reference as a theme to symbolically come back to its beginnings, presenting new works from new artists.
The artists whose works are presented in OCCURRENCE are part of the most recent artistic generation of this country; turned adult in a world and a universe that moves faster everyday, with an accelerated rhythm. Opposing our confused and disillusioned world, the different works create unique moments that propose slow-motion encounters with singular images; in drawing, sculpture, installation and video. Presenting a selection of diverse media, all their works reunite references to minimal and conceptual art, presenting new esthetic solutions.
For this, OCCURRENCE wants itself like a happening, a real situation, created by the confrontation and the dialogue between the works presented; at the same time we find their major sense mirrored in the title's semantics. Thus we can say that the creative will is the artistic happening.
The artists here presented, participated with success, in relevant art prizes and initiatives for new artists. André Romão (1984) wone the First Prize of EDP New Artists in 2007, Bruno Cidra won the sculpture prize D. Fernando II in 2005, Gonçalo Sena (1984) was selected for ANTECIPARTE 2007, Lúcia Prancha (1985) was selected for the Third Prize of Painting Ariane de Rothschild in 2007 and Pedro N. Marques (1984) is one of the three winners of the BES Revelation Prize 2007.
