Invasor Abstracto
by OSSO Colectivo
30th November 2019 to 22nd March 2020
Convento São Francisco

a programme of exhibitions, performances and concerts with works by Beatriz Cantinho, Diogo Alvim, Madalena Matoso, Matilde Meireles, Nuno Torres, Pedro Tropa, Ricardo Jacinto and Rita Thomaz.

“Invasor Abstracto” is a programme of installations, performances and concerts, Invasor Abstracto is a project dedicated to the circulation of different constellations of OSSO members, proposing itself as a space of reflection, creation and collective presentation. Each iteration intersects the creative territories outlined by each author, within an imagined journey between OSSO’s creative centre (São Gregório’s village in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal), other distant places and each presentation space. Invasor Abstracto is the nomad expression of a collective whose artistic work operates on a notion of territory, with a focus on its aesthetic and political implications on the construction of temporary communities.

Within this context OSSO presents at Convento São Francisco two installations and four performances, occupying a set of differentiated spaces in the building. Music, drawing, dance, photography, recorded sound, sculpture and video operate, through their singularity and their hybridizations, dialogues between the collective, its creative territories and the space of the old convent.
