FROM EXU TO JESUS CHRIST
WHAT COMES WHITHIN is not a project about religion. It is an experience about humanity, freedom, respect. Although the words "freedom" and “respect” became overused in the current superficial times, here, we are talking about ancestry, origin, desire. From Exu to Jesus Christ. A world that begins inside the mind, and spreads out through the body, through dance, through the rhythm for life. In this project images , the “other” will always be each one of us. It doesn't matter the color. No matter the pain. It doesn't matter the sex. And the "other" even if some of us don't want, exists, and has a name, surname, father, mother, past, future.
The present? The present is the ceaseless struggle to get rid of cancer-words like intolerance and prejudice. Only the very weak are able to throw themselves in that abyss. Why? Because they are cowards. Because they lie, they don't have logic, they don't know what foundation is, they can't stand to realize that others think differently from themselves, because they see nothing, neither inside nor out outside their own destinations. WHAT COMES WHITHIN is a visual exercise against oblivion. It has the intention to bring the pantheon of orixás closer to the pantheon of all other gods, in a single gesture, before the sacred universe and profane, of what is visible and invisible, of what belongs to us and, with the same greatness, it also belongs to whoever is at the our side, or in front of us.
