ONE SHOT - Exhibition, Gaivotas 6, Lisbon, PT.
Pink Room | 15.09.18
ONE SHOT must take place in a neutral space. Mobiles aren’t allowed and only one viewer can
enter the room at a time. In the room, there is a Polaroid camera and the artist. The viewer
is invited to take a photograph, place it on the ground, and observe the result. The total time
allowed inside is 3 minutes.
The exhibition presents the result of Carolina Pimenta’s original ONE SHOT performance, which
was held at the same location on Rua das Gaivotas 6 on March 10th 2018, alongside the artist’s
book, which was where the performance originated. Like the previous event, the exhibition
lasts for only a few hours, incorporating the ephemeral nature of the performance and leaving
it open to define its own limit as to what extent it’s possible to perpetuate the confrontation. A
natural extension of Pimenta’s photographic work, which addresses as a central concern of
her artistic practice, namely issues of identity, representation and perception.
