Rest Oration (ELGreco), (2020)
David Leal (b. Portugal) creates work which reflects on three main subjects: Vision, Religion and Sexuality. His work emphasises the power of belief(s) and illusions by dancing with the semiotics of Christianity. This necessarily inspects notions of sensitivity — through senses, morals or experiences. Pieces that work as detectives looking for something labelled as soul.
Exploring how religion and sexuality mine vision and vice-versa, not as a product of distilled reasoning but something with stains of (a) being.
