The Winners

 
 
Diana Carvalho (Lisbon, 1986)
The jury of the 8th edition of NB revelation unanimously selected the projects entered in the competition by Diana Carvalho, Joana Escoval, Tiago Casanova and by the duo Mariana Caló & Francisco Queimadela.

Each winner received a production grant worth 7500 Euros, which helped them to produce the projects presented here, from 30 November 2012 to 31 March 2013, in the Casa de Serralves, in an exhibition commissioned by Carolina Rito and with the exclusive sponsorship of NOVO BANCO.
 
 
 
Joana Escoval (Lisbon, 1982)
Project based on the observation of um aquarium in Lisbon, the Vasco da Gama Aquarium which today is considered obsolete (a kind of “museum-like” version of aquariums and scientific spaces), more specifically of two seahorses resident there. According to the artist, “I am proposing a reflection on a number of situations that occur within that small sub-aquatic space, from an essentially spatial and pictorial perspective for the construction of video compositions– following the changes in colour/light, movement and texture experienced in that scenario. Without looking for a narrative or any idea of documental action of this “sample” of the marine universe, this project will use audiovisual means to expand and transform the space of that aquarium”.
 
 
 
Tiago Casanova (Funchal, Island of Madeira, 1988)

Project, represented by analogic photography and film, which “sets out to question the significance of memory through the documental nature of photography, exploring concepts such as lost and found, recovery, restoration, conservation and the destruction of personal archives and memories”.

 
   
 
Mariana Caló (Viana do Castelo, 1984) and Francisco Queimadela (Coimbra, 1985)

Project of a video installation entitled Observatory of the Unknown. On three screens we will see, in the words of the artists, “imagery related with the notion of discovery and the revelation of the unknown, developed within the Portuguese cultural panorama throughout time; it [basically] comes from a quest on paper of the relationship with the unknown in the process of edification of cultural identity and collective memory.
