GAMBADOS PODCAST WITH NUNO SOUSA COMING SOON!
NUNO SOUSA is a combo of cool uncle and warm grandpa. His multifaceted approach to visual arts, music, and theory makes him the coolest uncle to be around–plus, he plays numerous instruments and what a singer! Then there’s Sousa as a man of great words and deep thoughts, the kind that leave silences igniting brain activity on a very profound level. And of course, he is a great–as any grandparent should be–storyteller. Narrative is perhaps the most foundational aspect of Nuno Sousa’s approach to thinking, art making, and living. The academic, in his case, follows inevitably the same logic: images as ghosts that conjure stories.
TRANSLATED LYRICS TO NUNO’S BALADAS DAS HORAS VAGAS
BALLAD OF THE OFF-PEAK HOURS
I’m not a person of extended pages, nor of half-words
from math I only manage to draw my place
but at times I feel afflicted by small nonsensical things
like when I dust or broom the floor of the house
I numb, thinking of stars, and of the implications of my gestures and actions
in the privilege of not having to take care of the world
the sweetness of the everyday
a sort of suspension in time
the matter of absurdity and dreams
