It includes a fantastic essay by Demelza Woodbridge, a London based multi-disciplinary artist and activist researching modes of practice as strategies of resistance to narratives of cultural dominance. A praxis of decoloniality combined with a feminist approach inform her practice in the challenging of Western notions of universality, neutrality and linear evolution. Working predominantly with performance and sound, her work seeks to disrupt and interrogate power dynamics and challenge cultural bias.
The catalogue also includes colour images of my work in the show, but also other contextualising pieces.

Matéria Cíclica | Cyclic Matter
The project is taking shape, but very slowly. Rural Portugal has been a force against the rat-race that both myself and Patrick were used to. We still haven't updated the main website, www.cyclicmatter.org, but we decided to launch www.ferreiranormanstudios.net as an intermediate website, to be able to have a documentation and register of our activities, related to Cyclic Matter, since it is looking like the project of getting the project up and running is a project in itself!
