Work Description

In Desenho, the artists Louis Porter and Pedro Torres play with original images taken from an artistic drawing course that was sold in installments in Brazil in the 1980s and 1990s. The artists propose a new reading for the images, with different framings and combinations, decontextualizing their learning function. Focusing on the errors, defects and inconsistencies of the original magazine, the publication becomes an artistic exercise that examines the failure of the artistic exercise. En la publicación Desenho, los artistas Louis Porter y Pedro Torres juegan con imágenes originales sacadas de un curso de dibujo artístico que se vendía en fascículos en Brasil en los años ochenta y noventa. Los artistas proponen una nueva lectura para las imágenes, con diferentes encuadres y combinaciones, descontextualizando su función de aprendizaje. Fijándose en los errores, defectos e incoherencias de la revista original, la publicación se convierte en un ejercicio artístico que examina el fracaso del ejercicio artístico.
