as you do on earth…

Carlos Noronha Feio 06 September 2016 – 01 October 2016 Guest project at Galerie Iragui, Moscow

The title of Noronha Feio’s exhibition comes from the Soviet silent sci-fi movie Aelita (1924). It quotes the intertitle from the scene where Aelita, who lives on Mars, first encounters Los, a visitor from Earth. She asks him ‘Touch my lips with your lips – – as you do on Earth’. In this poetic manner, Carlos Noronha Feio underlines the gap in communication inherent within any form of intercultural exchange. The artist’s practice is focused on transcending the limitations of any single culture through the introduction and inclusion of multiple cross-cultural visual vocabularies.
