Living With a Couple & Jerry the Cat & Lourenço Soares

Leonor Arnaut (voice), João Carreiro (guitar), João Pereira (drums), Jerry the Cat (percussion); live performance, two-channel video installation; 2022

After an invitation by Living with a Couple, and during an artistic residency in Portugal, we developed a narrative framed by sonorous chapters and speculative geologies that looked at the relationship between dinosaur representation and politics. The work reflects on how political ideologies have influenced the history of paleoart especially in legitimizing neoliberal imaginaries.

The work was first presented at Teatro do Bairro Alto in Lisbon.
