It's Crystal Clear | 12th May until 12th June 2022

crystal clear /ˌkrɪstəl ˈklɪə/ adj. absolutely clear; transparent; lucid 2. unambiguous; easily understood

Transparency presumes the absence of filters, yet honesty and uprightness. Transparency thus applies to objects as to people. In the latter case, it reflects a   person’s quality of openness and purity. Vês Três’ exhibition “It’s Crystal Clear” is a visual journey that explores their individual practices and the way they merge together. The exhibition unfolds through two rooms that comprise Vês Trés’ older pieces and their new ones, which see the artists playing and experimenting with new materials and transparencies, reflections and overlays. An aesthetic and almost sensory journey is established by the diverse pieces exhibited. We are brought to keep playing with the art pieces from a distance and closely, in a continuous cycle of revelations and hidden elements. We get to discover Vês Três’ work procedure, through a video installation and the latest artworks which reveal the way their own symbols, techniques, and stories merge, layer after layer. Behind each piece there are indeed the stories they’ve shared while painting, the secrets they’ve confessed to each other, which we could try grasping from the audio installation, a gem to look for! It’s “crystal clear” that Vês Três’ art evolves as they go through life experiences and collect memories to then share in conversations. Their art is relational, not only in the way it’s produced but also in its capacity to engage the viewer and make it part of their narratives.
