2015's edition of project Vicente - a project Travessa da Ermida anual initiative which began in 2011 and has as them the city of Lisbon Patron, Saint Vincent, who has been interpreted in several ways by national and international artists and authors - deals with three intertwined themes: Sacred, Body and Image.

The program, part of Lisboa na Rua/ Com'out Lisbon municipal initiative proposes a series of innovative artistic situations, by international creators for the first time in Lisbon. The invited artists are the Italian Alessandro Lupi, and the German Gabriele Seifert and Rochus Aust with its 1. DEUTSCHES STROMORCHESTER.

Alessandro Lupi produces an ephemeral sculpture in the urban space of Travessa do Marta Pinto. Gabriele Seifert presents a video installation in the chapel, and a performance involving those passing by. Rochus Aust presents a skype concert during the opening, connecting Lisbon to Zurich, as a preview of his installation for next year. The ceremony is about to begin!

Every year, VICENTE is also a book, a set of essays with surprising perspectives, complementing each other while revisiting the myth in our time. The authors of the 2015 folio are Vítor Manuel Adrião, historian and esotheric writer; Moirika Reker, visual artist and landscape researcher; Paulo Borges, philosopher and writer; Fernando Poeiras, researcher in communication sciences and design; Philip Cabau, essayist in the field of drawing; Nelson Guerreiro, theater author and performer. The edition includes original drawing projects by Vítor Galvão and João Carola as well as a special extratext dedicated to the opera CABARET VICENTE, by José Eduardo Rocha, premièred at São Luiz Teatro Municipal in 2014.

Biographies

Alessandro Lupi
Alessandro Lupi was born in Genoa, Italy in 1975. He studied at the Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti in Genoa. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His works were exhibited among others at the Uffizi Museum in Florence, the Avesta Museum in Sweden or the Kunsthaus Tacheles in Berlin. in 2008 an installation work was commissioned for the International Biennial of Havana which is permanently exhibited in the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes de San Alejandro in Havana. In 2010 the City of Ljubljana commissioned a permanent sculpture to celebrate the World Book Capital Ljubljana by the UNESCO. Lupiʼs work focuses on light and its fusion with color, space and time. Every work appears to create its own world, concentrating on the idea of “inversion”, that is, on the possibility of offering to the spectator the opposite point of view from the expected or predicted one. In his works the dichotomy of opposite situations, like exterior-interior, freedom-prison or life-death are annulated by the contemporary perception of these two aspects without, nevertheless, favoring any perceptive or hierarchic prevalence. Participated in the last Venice Architecture Biennale with Light Curve, an in situ intervention presented at Palazzo Bembo.
