Movie: fatto di sottile sfumatura di rumore
Art can be a forecast, a prophecy, an uncanny premonition. In part, this is how João Ferro Martins regards his film fatto di sottile sfumatura di rumore (made of the quietest shade of loud). The multi-year project began shooting in 2017 in the Lisbon gallery 3+1 Contemporary Art. The artist then expanded the narrative in outdoor settings until 2019 and presented the film at that same gallery in 2020. The film was made in the middle of a personal catharsis, one closely linked to the ecological crisis in the world. It’s a gathering of poetical images that surround the artist’s practices in a visual and, most of all, sonorous way. It was made on almost no budget and with the presence and music of other artists that are also part of his environment. The text is a collection of personal and existential aphorisms, written and edited during this process.
