Magic

"If you go to the theatre and see Peter Pan flying above the stage, you ignore the wires: that is a willing suspension of disbelief. If you go to the theatre and see David Copperfield flying above the stage, you do not ignore the wires. You look for the wires. You do not see any wires. That is magic.
If you look for the wires and see them, that is bad magic. If you do not look for the wires because the possibility has not occured to you, then you do not need magic since you must live in a world of endless wonders. If the possibility of wires does occur to you but you decide not to look for them, then that is indeed a willing suspension of disbelief. But it is not magic." (Peter Lamont, "Magic and the willing suspension of disbelief", in Magic Show)

Na Galeria Graça Brandão, João Maria Gusmão & Pedro Paiva mostram-nos filmes, fotografias e instalações inéditas na exposição "Breve história da lentidão e da vertigem". Fios, fios, fios, fios...
