“Three distinct bodies of work, each mobilising a specific medium (sculpture, photography, film) dialogue with one another, interpret one another, interfere with one another, creating a cluster of transversal relationships irreducible to their sum: a polygraphic exhibition is not the simple addiction of three monographic propositions, but a transaction that proceeds from the very disparity of the mediums and the works themselves, provoking a montage effect that echoes the filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein’s theory that the juxtaposition of two images produces not a third image but a concept. What, then, on the concept produced by the confrontation of the works in this exhibition THE REST IS SHADOW, which brings together works by the filmmaker Pedro Costa, the sculptor Rui Chafes and the photographer Paulo Nozolino?”
