2018 paper_04 | Installation, Escala 1:1 / Scale, Tabacalera, Madridproject project
SCALE 1: 1 is a multidisciplinary exhibition that includes the work of twenty-one contemporary Portuguese artists internationally recognized. It is curated by Verónica de Mello.
It proposes a reflection on the concept of scale as a tool for reading, comparing and creating references to understand the space and context of each person. Scale is a term that is commonly used to refer to the representation of reality.
“The drawing that we recognize as conventional on paper, canvas, on any tactile surface enabling the passage of graphite or color, is rethought by Tomaz Hipólito in the installation 2018 paper_04 (2018), in which the paper itself, once drawing support, designs now in space. The scale of this drawing inhabits the space, giving the possibility, in the enjoyment of the work, for everyone to understand in his or her intimate this “new” drawing in a very personal way. “ – Verónica de Mello
“In the relationship between the dimension of the object and that of its representation can not, in any case, exist without scale, even when we consider a metric or other scale, from the moment in which the thing exists, it is place in the world and therefore, its scale can be calculated. The extent to which the definition of scale is presented meets the relational totality possible, whose amplitude completes a spectrum that is offered from the least infinite to the most infinite, in which the scale 1:1 will be the zero point.
In view of this relational perspective we can also propose another consideration, that the Works of Art, by their ontological nature, are always in real scale. That is, it is not what the work represents what is in real scale, but the work itself, which is presented in a body-to-body relationship of the work and the viewer, which is always on a real scale.” – text by Nuno Sousa Vieira
