13 January 2015 – 7.30pm
Ilha de São Jorge
curated by Beyond Entropy Africa
On Tuesday 13th of January 2015 at 7.30pm, HangarBicocca hosts Ilha de São Jorge, a project curated by Beyond Entropy Africa within the cultural calendar of HB Public. At his second stop after the onset at the Architecture Biennale in 2014, the review aims to create an extraterritorial Lusophone Africa virtual space through the projection of six video works by Suleimane Biai + Filipa César, Filipe Branquinho + Tiago Correia-Rui Paulo + Terneiro, Monica de Miranda, Irineu Destourelles, Kiluanji Kia Henda, and Kwame + René Sousa Tavares.
The video works were selected by the curators to represent how modernism has been absorbed in the five Portuguese-speaking African Republics: Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique and São Tomé and Príncipe. The evening is opened by a conversation between Stefano Rabolli Pansera (Director of Beyond Entropy Ltd) and Irineu Destourelles (artist in Ilha de São Jorge).
Beyond Entropy is a not-for-profit research based company practicing architecture, urbanism and cultural analysis, originally developed by Stefano Rabolli Pansera. Beyond Entropy uses the concept of energy as a tool to conceive new forms of architecture beyond the rhetoric of sustainability and operates at the threshold between art, architecture and geopolitics on a global level, in association with public organizations, private institutions and governmental agencies in three territories: Africa, Europe and the Mediterranean. Beyond Entropy operates while developing curatorial activities, art installations, architectural interventions, master-plans, public debates and publications. Since 2012 Beyond Entropy regular presence during La Biennale di Venezia leaded up to several important projects and shows as for example Luanda, Encyclopedic City, Venice Biennale 2013 (Leone d’Oro for best National Participation at the 55th International Art Exhibition).
