TintaMariposaMetastase

This book analises twenty-four art projects shaped around female experiences of breast cancer. Available on the Internet, these creations allow us to follow the multiple uses and meanings accumulated by the artworks between the initial motivations of their creators and the purpose behind their display on public and digital space. Contradicting the simplistic concept that defines art as a representation or reproduction of reality, I understand these objects and projects as a constitutive part of experience itself, immersed on the way these women live, understand and take action on cancer. It also redefines art as a form of knowledge and transformative practice, not only as a way to objectify and give personal meaning and form to inner experiences of disease, but also as an emancipative counter-hegemonic exercise of activism infused with social ambitions. Presenting an epistemological conception of art and a dialogical conception of social science, this investigation also carries the purpose of presenting itself as a product of conversation. Questioning and testing the possibility of a translation between embodied, artistic, anthropological and sociological understandings, it intends to redefine cancer as an external social construct against the notion of its spontaneous, corporal and internal reproduction.

Noronha, Susana de (2015) Objetos Feitos de Cancro: mulheres, cultura material e doença nas estórias da arte, Coimbra, Almedina.

 

ObjetosFeitosCancroObjetos Feitos de Cancro (des)arruma a cultura material da doença oncológica, olhando para as materialidades que ganham forma, uso e sentido nas imagens e textos de projetos artísticos criados por ou com mulheres que viveram esta experiência. Os objetos são entendidos como pedaços de cancro, ou seja, partes constitutivas das sensações, emoções, ideias e gestos que fazem a experiência do corpo doente. Objetos hospitalares, domésticos e pessoais encastram-se no diagnóstico, tratamento, remissão, metastização e morte, fazendo a doença que se sente e pensa. Da cadeira da sala de espera à última pulseira hospitalar, arrumam-se seringas, máquinas, relatórios, macas, camas, instrumentos cirúrgicos, drenos, pensos, próteses, bombas infusoras, cabeleiras, roupa e muita outra bagagem. Nos lugares da Internet, estórias e ensaios de fotografia, pintura, desenho, colagem, modelagem, escultura e costura deixam espreitar os carcinomas, sarcomas, linfomas e leucemias que fazem a soma das experiências que dão corpo a este texto. Dizer que a doença se desdobra como uma experiência modular e que os objetos existem e agem no cancro como realidades encastráveis, assenta numa abordagem teórica e metodológica onde ensaio o potencial explicativo daquilo a que chamo a “terceira metade das coisas e do conhecimento”.
