JORGE ANDRADE / MALA VOADORA
Jorge Andrade tells the story of mala voadora
The starting point is the idea of “monograph”. mala voadora doesn’t exactly aspire to make a monograph resonating its legacy, but the procedures toproduce one seem to us an excellent matter for making up.
We wish to make a fake monograph with actual images from the company’s archive alongside others that are made to look like it but aren’t—they’re as much staged as a performance. mala voadora shall have a literally theatrical monograph, one that is itself “theatre” (and more than just about theatre). We invited photographer José Carlos Duarte, who’s been photographing mala voadora’s performances since 2009, to work with Jorge Andrade in staging thismonograph. He’s in a privileged position to, on the one hand, pick images among the many he’s been producing, and on the other hand, manipulate those images and mix them with the ones that will be produced now to forge history.
