    "Nothing" was beyond time. Alone even in the light. It was the other name of finding yourself. The last point that you ever dreamed of being. Taking his age from here to there and every single possession that he has never had. The last stage, a single syllable "nothing".

  • description

    Yesterday I started a new art mail project - "One day I had sex". Everything is simple.


    1) you can download a file and print 1 or 2 postcards. (2 submissions per one person - max)

    2) you recall one of those sexual experiences or fantasies that you'd like to remember - and share

    3) fill the postcard with your text

    4) send it to me


    At the end of June, I will issue the final results as an online exhibition on onedayihadsex.site and will share an online catalog with all participants, who took part in this project. All texts can be written in your own language, but please, write it clearly so that it can be read and translated into English afterward :)

  • show address Alcaide, Fundão | Portugal
  • description

    At this 2020’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous editions. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    Amanita Bunker, wears robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia ... artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.
