This research project was carried out over two years thanks to the XIII Marc Ferrez Photography Award (Funarte), which enabled contact with different aspects of artistic production and circulation networks in ten cities, from north to south of the country. The result exhibited a polyphonic set of works marked by the presence of photography as a narrative instrument. The plural character of this investigation reflects the tendency of contamination between languages; not only from the perspective of the hybridity of postmodern aesthetics, but also, keeping in tune with the symbiosis between text and image, increasingly fed by the interactive complexity of communication in contemporary society. The transmission of an event is facilitated by the superposition of different means to describe complementary facets in its attribution of meaning. Above all, with regard to current narratives, texts are invaded by images and these are resinified by writing.


Fotos Tell Fatos lists unconventional approaches, when compared to the presentation of traditional photography that portrays unique images. The research sought other ways to articulate photographic propositions that move between artistic categories. Thus, the dialogue is amplified in a context that values the reading of the image as a vehicle  narrative  in varied supports such as installation, sculpture, object, video or books and publications in general. 

In tune with the generalized sensation of information overload that challenges our daily selective capacity, the expography, adopted in this proposition, evokes the compulsive and aggregating nature of the library, transgressing the formal asepsis of the “white cube”. The works are displayed on conventional metal shelves like those found in libraries. The gallery's occupancy is saturated. There is an excess of stimuli that compromise the assimilation of the whole.
