"The group of pieces I present in this project are part of a creative moment that I've been delaying and, finally it will take shape in this exhibition. I face it as a parenthesis, not an isolating or informative one but, one of those that open and unfold a reality. These works have a revelation method that refers almost to the beginning of photography, in the sense that, in a thin contact sheet a negative surface is printed. The process is simple: to reveal and accumulate the dust underneath the protection plastics of the studio's floor. This series refers to a real scale and not to an exterior and distant point of view of what was drawn. These works are essentially made from contacts. The contact in this exhibition is present in the negative. The hidden surface is revealed, showing not what we are used to seeing on a sheet but, what touches the surface, usually hidden by touch and time. I had to take a step back and assemble waste material from works I have developed in the past. To these waste, I added waste of more recent works. Scratches in the studio waiting to be erased or activated... I insisted on keeping these scratched and (un)significant surfaces because it was printed on them the peripatetic gesture of the production of the pieces. The majority of these works are works that define a temporality and a spatiality since its waste is of passing actions - spaces of absent pieces. "Live the present", some would say. The present is only tangible in appearance; in reality is what is more unreal. The purity of the present lives in its impurities. If we would like reality to exist we have to recreate it, constantly. Drawing is not about being limited to a "medium", to a framing; to draw is the infinitive of drawing. It is when once in the studio I can work the limits and borders of what was already projected". Diogo Pimentão, 2016
