One has to bear in mind how galleries and curators deal with the art world and with the artists. The main purpose of an art gallery is to sell to specific clients with specific demands. They try to adjust that demand with the artistic work itself. Nowadays art performances are more accepted by the public, so that makes it easier for some artists. That doesn’t mean that it has a mutual and consensual effect between the gallery and the artist for the goal of selling an art product. Sometimes, a performance can be set as a marketing tool for other work that the same artist does and allows galleries to generate art events. For the artist itself, the performance is purely art, with no other goals, although one knows how difficult some of those actions can be for the galleries and for the selling purposes. I started to do performances at my art school Ar.Co, mainly video performance, like Long Walk. I think it’s the less known side of my work by the public. When Instagram showed up, I started to do photo performances and some short video experiences. In those, some eroticism was also explored. These works were directed to a wider audience, and allowed me to be more known worldwide. Surprisingly I was related with some pop art work. One thing is for sure: I always mix my personal life, the places I go and situations that I enjoy with my work. A few years ago, I created with some other young Portuguese and foreign artists an event called Afrontamentos (it can have several meanings: confrontation, flashes, facing, daring). It was presented in eight different places, mainly in the Lisbon area. In those events, porno actions were the source of inspiration. In my specific domain, I did performance and collages, where I used porn magazines.
