The work of Margarida
Sardinha is constantly
evolving. The medium
can range from digital
projection to Last
animation, light-box Name
and installation.
Margarida’s latest
works involve
holographic Email
techniques. As an
artist, the driving force
behind all these
devices is an
uncompromising Subscribe
quest for to the
understanding and Newsletter
making sense of (EN
existence; space, time Version)!
and matter. The I
various methods accept
employed are but the
tools along the way, to Privacy
be utilised where they Policy
can be to visualise the
journey, making real SUBSCRIBE
and capturing
moments that might
usefully be termed
absorption,
contemplation and
ecstasy.
Margarida’s journey is
one of constant
exploration, an
archaeological quest of
discovery, mapping
out interior journeys
for us, visualising
aspects of the
landscape that plays
such a vital part in our
existence.
This exhibition sees a
new medium enter this
mix, holography. The
‘image’ in this case
oscillates before us,
floating like a rogue
planet. As in previous
works, the concern is
to demonstrate the
illusion of kinetic
movement, where the
viewer places herself in
the midst of the scene,
a spectacle that
arrests, seduces and
hypnotises the
participant. These are
hard won images,
arrived at through
extensive research,
spanning cultures and
millennia, including
studies in symbolism,
physics, comparative
religion and
mythology. Ultimately
however, they rely
largely on grasping
instinct, perception
and feeling – feeling
one’s way through
forces that may well be
beyond our mental
reach.
Philosophy seems to
find its conclusion in
religion and Margarida
finds solace and
inspiration between
these inter-connected
worlds.
