The making of SONATINA’S 4 FEET and Alair Gomes: https://vimeo.com/505571329
Armed with his telephoto lens, Alair Gomes created pictures of the perfect male body in Brazil in the 1970s. Desire and curiosity were the breeding ground for these ‘stolen’ images. Raw, unaffected, sometimes unintentionally aggressive. In 1992 he was murdered as a result of his photographs.
Gomes did not believe in the unique image. With series of consecutive shots he created a rhythm, a movement, or as he called it ‘Sonatinas’. His work remained unknown for a long time. Only recently Gomes was discovered by leading art institutions such as MoMA in New York and Maisonnette Cartier in Paris.
Paiva and two dancers from Fractal Collective pick up the analogue poetry of Gomes’ sonatinas. Camera and telephoto lens are exchanged for dancing bodies and foam sculptures. Their breeding ground? Borders, security, vulnerability and hope. A quest for the perspective and rhythm of today’s world.
