Artistic Residency at Kulturfabrik, 2022

Exhibition photos at Kulturfabrik, Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg

During the month of November of 2022, Alexandre Alagôa was invited to be part of SQUATFABRIK#4, an artistic residency programme at Kulturfabrik, in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg), in order to freely develop new audiovisual work.

The artist set two goals: 1) to continue the production of a new experimental film focused on perception and entoptic phenomena, which he had already started during Spring of the same year; and 2) to develop a series of audiovisual installations exploring the physicality of images through the use of metal, a crucial material for the historical industrial past of the city of Esch.

On the 26th of November, Alagôa presented his new film WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES I SEE EVERYTHING at the Kinosch (the cinema room) of Kufa’s cultural center, and the five resulting audiovisual installations (Friction Circuit, Falling Eye, Soleil Rouge, Metal Waves and Its Own Unmaking) at Gallery Terres Rouges.
