Statement:

Henrique Fagundes (Canoas - Brazil), multimedia artist and art-educator, works from excerpts, symbols, images and materials found in media repositories on the Internet, seeking to understand, through the creation of videos, animations, objects and installations, the sociocultural and affective logics behind this content. In his investigations as well as in his educational propositions, he tries to think about the use of new media as a political tool, as well as poetic, reflecting them as instruments for the emancipation of new narratives and contexts.

Henrique Fagundes (n.1994, Canoas), artista multim√≠dia e arte-educador, trabalha a partir de excertos, s√≠mbolos, imagens e materiais encontrados em reposit√≥rios de m√≠dias na Internet, buscando entender, atrav√©s da cria√ß√£o de v√≠deos, anima√ß√Ķes, objetos e instala√ß√Ķes, as l√≥gicas socioculturais e afetivas por tr√°s desse conte√ļdo. Em suas investiga√ß√Ķes tanto quanto em suas proposi√ß√Ķes educativas, intenta pensar o uso das novas m√≠dias como ferramenta pol√≠tica, al√©m de po√©tica, refletindo-as como instrumentos de emancipa√ß√£o de novas narrativas e contextos.

Tropical Meridional Fiction

Henrique Fagundes

2027, 2049, 2071, a great nation permeates the notions of time and space. A territory that rises beyond the geological landmarks that constitute it, based on an idea that there is ideology in the land that is stepped on. Traumas, caravans, coats of arms, symbols, artifacts, figures and heritages that elevate a country to a greater place. To the future. Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the coast will be the main stage for this rise. The opening wing will be firepower, passinho and stereotypes. Republic, Monarchy, Empire. In Tropical Meridional Fiction, Brazil as we know it and its inhabitants were objects of sale and exchange, and what remains are a large wasteland of 8,516 million km¬≤ in length. The elements that once constituted it as a nation serve as a totem for this territorial representation. 2027, 2049, 2071, uma grande na√ß√£o perpassa as no√ß√Ķes de tempo e espa√ßo. Um territ√≥rio que se eleva al√©m dos marcos geol√≥gicos que o constituem, baseando-se em uma ideia de que h√° ideologia na terra que se pisa. Traumas, carreatas, bras√Ķes, s√≠mbolos, artefatos, figuras e heran√ßas que elevam um pa√≠s a um lugar maior. Ao futuro. Delimitado pelo oceano Atl√Ęntico a leste, o litoral ser√° palco principal dessa ascens√£o. O abre alas ser√° o poder de fogo, o passinho e os estere√≥tipos. Rep√ļblica, Monarquia, Imp√©rio. Em Tropical Meridional Fiction, o Brasil como conhecemos e seus habitantes foram objetos de venda e troca, e o que sobrou √© um grande terreno baldio de 8.516 milh√Ķes de km¬≤ de extens√£o. Os elementos que um dia o constitu√≠ram como na√ß√£o servem de totem dessa representa√ß√£o territorial.
