dA cAPO is inspired by the work of Belgium artist René Magritte and his vision on the visible and the invisible. It translates elements like contradiction, paradox, and the breakdown of logical relations of meaning to question the reality of the apparent and visible at first sight. The piece shifts between a visible and non-visible space, establishing relationships which are not necessarily rational but nearer to the world of the oneiric or surrealistic.
It recrafts the old trick of visual theatre where black disappears in black and white…. The action is developed between the interpretation and the manipulation of the actual piece.
