under a two-moon belief system no duality endures brings together two recent film works by Alice dos Reis in her first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. While Undercurrent follows a marine biologist as she maps out the bottom of the Atlantic by remote sensing with bioengineered krill, Stan Rehearsal looks at a group of friends from the Atlantic island of São Miguel, who witness the archipelago’s first rocket launch. Both these speculative fiction films connect through a vertical axis: from the bottom of the ocean to outer space, its characters navigate questions regarding the more-than-human and the systems that mediate their contact.
Alice dos Reis is an artist living and working between Amsterdam and Lisbon. She holds a Masters in Fine Art from the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and has exhibited, read and published regularly in galleries, institutions and film festivals including EYE Film Museum (Amsterdam), 5th Istanbul Design Biennale, Display...(Prague), Serralves Museum for Contemporary Art (Porto), Seventh Gallery (Melbourne), Galerie InSitu (Paris), and Gallery Lehmann + Silva (Porto). She’s had her films featured on platforms such as Vdrome and Museum of the Moving Image (NY). In 2020 they received the Mondriaan Fonds development grant for Emerging Artists.
