The past February 14th was the last day of activity of ACERVO in its original facilities. It was also its last day as ACERVO. It is with great pleasure that we announce a new date for the opening of NO·NO in its new space at Rua de Santo António à Estrela 39A.

About

Leap of Faith is the group exhibition that inaugurates the new space and a gallery project of the NO·NO gallery. Curated by Miguel Mesquita, the exhibition presents 14 artists of which are guest artists : Ana Rebordão, Catarina Real, Diogo Bolota, Januário Jano, and the artistic duo Mariana Calo + Francisco Queimadela.

The title of the exhibition refers to an expression commonly attributed to the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard, which defines the model of transition to the third and last state of life and arises as a the response to the proposition of no-no’s opening, which results from a transformation, a re-foundation. Simultaneously referring to the task of creating a gallery project and the state of mind that motivates the new framing of the gallery, the title of the exhibition remits to an act of accepting or believing in something beyond the limits of reason. Just as Kierkegaard's “leap” represents a change in a state of skepticism towards belief, the works presented explore this acceptance beyond rationality as a system of individual validation of the artistic object, charging the viewer with the duty of accepting the interpretation of the artworks and the relation they establish between themselves. Through the idea of leap, the selected artworks recover the Kierkegaardian concept of transition between states, informally going through themes inherent to this condition such as acceptance, the occult, the unknown, the irrational and the will, while at the same time confronting these themes with elements of characterisation of the human nature, such as fear, hesitation and error.
