Francisco Duarte Coelho & Wiro Van Vilsteren
We’ll think about it yesterday
With a touch of cynical humour Francisco Duarte Coelho (PT) and Wiro Van Vilsteren (NL) present We’ll Think About it Yesterday, a duo show that draws attention to the fickle nature of what they are leaving behind for future generations.
For the dutch architect living in Alentejo, this is most prominent in the materials used for contemporary constructions. Baked clay, concrete and bricks erode within a few generations of polluted weather, thus shifting general notions of timelessness and beauty. With his lightweight, suspended structures, Wiro questions his relationship to permanence through the ephemerality of architecture.
Francisco’s concern lies in the over reliance on technology for data preservation and transmission. With his digital oracles he highlights the godly influence technology exerce’s on it’s followers.
Together the artists collaborated on an interactive piece for which they invite visitors to contribute small symbolic objects into a coffin-like time capsule.
