Forum Art Braga receives, between April 6 and June 22, the first solo exhibition by Austrian artist Oliver Laric in Portugal.
"Walking Sidways” analyses the different concepts of connectivity, replication, hybridity, transformation, and all its transition processes. Central to the theme of the exhibition is the extension of ideas and forms; the act of discarding the concept of a single description allows the works become less categorical and give themselves to the opening of form and the possibility of various narratives and interpretations. Interested in information overload, in the free and endless distribution of content and reproduction of images, Oliver Laric presents a series of seven works that point for the moment of transition, for something that endures, it remains unfinished and unstable.
The name of the exhibition is inspired by the publication “Walking Sidways: the remarkable world of crabs” written by Dr Judith S. Weis, an informative book that describes the history and journey of the crabs. At the time of the exhibition, the artist is not only interested in the animal as such, but in the association and connectivity between human and non-human forms. Here, crabs are a major issue due to their need for constant transformation in search of larger shells as they grow; crabs adapt to both land and sea, moving laterally from one house to another.
