    Psych Op Pump

    The installation Psych Op Pump, created by artist, composer and director Jonathan Uliel Saldanha, transforms the gallery space into an inverted mountain, creating an illusion of a bottomless lake in a high toxicity environment. 
    On the opening day the piece will be activated through the performance of poet and performer Igor Borovsky, with whom Saldanha has been collaborating since 2014.
    Free entry.

    On the border between sound and visual arts, Jonathan Uliel Saldanha investigates the areas of intersection between artistic territories, exploring tensions between the synthetic and the landscape. His work has been presented in various programming contexts such as Centro Cultural de Belém, Palais de Tokyo, Culturgest and Teatro Municipal do Porto, or festivals such as Unsound, Le Guess Who?, Sónar or Primavera Sound.
