Prepositions, Compositions and Propositions
Fields of Prepositions is an invitation to coming together. The project takes place openly, warmly and provocatively in the communal areas of SESC Ipiranga. BETWEEN nearby and faraway neighbourhoods, WITH the Parque da Independência and the Museu Paulista, Heliópolis, old palaces, the remnants of the blue-collar workers’ neighbourhood, modern apartment buildings, other parts of São Paulo, Brasília and London. If in a verbal language prepositions express relations (and describe the modes of being and how time flows), Fields of Prepositions aims to imagine and experience spaces, narratives at play, bodies, voices and rhythms in this multiplicity – BETWEEN/WITH/BEFORE/FROM… different audiences, forces, artists, educators, powers, institutions, and so on.
O grupo inteiro has set up experiences in SESC Ipiranga and surrounding areas knowing and acknowledging the competition for the narratives involved in the vicinity and in current times, establishing a dialogue with many voices and bodies. PROPOSITIONS by artists and writers will be activated and paced in the Project’s space-time. COMPOSITIONS unfold into research and critical, educational and artistic interchanges. And PREPOSITIONS, more infrastructural, available for expected and unexpected uses, open up to appropriations and resignifications. What imaginings, public spheres, speeches and effects are being constructed, taken apart and/or let go of every day?
Many of the ideas that have survived throughout the investigation carried out by this expanded group, have emerged from conversation noises, scraps of notes, different interpretations of something said, or drawn – and formed a kind of semantic slip. Therefore, by revealing them here, we are betting on Fields of Prepositions by SESC Ipiranga as a diagram, or a collage, that is able to create other meanings WITH the many of those who, like us, are also wiling to come together. We celebrate the building of relationships with common interests and different worlds – the energy of connections, atomic, affectionate and random that are willing to transform – like SESC São Paulo Ipiranga, Central Saint Martins and collaborating artists and writers, who live together and magnify experiences with the audiences and the unexpected.
