For me it is hard to have to resort to this space, especially when it is valuable to help projects with more usefull nature. The truth is that without a job is impossible to finish a project that started two years ago and that will lose it’s pace and space to be done if we do not push this through. That is why I need your help.
What it is then, House 8?
It is a visual treatise on sexuality or as I like to call it, a scoptifílic study about spiritual pornography. How to deconstruct this topic?
Almost everything was said and shown about sexuality, especially what is most acceptable, easy to consume, or what is shocking but at the same time attractive. What house 8 proposes to do is the opposite; criticizing the banality of it, criticizing through photography showing how humanity indulges, crosses and cast their seeds, not paying any attention to their fruit.
The project has the talent of these artists / models: Rui Reininho, Jéssica Chantre, Ivo Canelas, Sara Ribeiro, Isabel Abreu, Claudia Soares, Ana Ferrao, Maria Albuquerque, Diego Bueno, Diogo Faria, Maria Leite, Marta Neto, Joan Verona, Emanuel Arada, Catia Terrinca, Filipe Jorge Dias, Gabriela Santos, Elísio Donas, Inês Antunes de Almeida, David Mesquita, Paula Garcia, Joana Pais de Brito, among many others.
BUDGET AND DUE DATES
It may seem a lot for a photography project, but walk me through this: each studio rental per hour is 50 euros, gasoline (little, try to do everything in downtown Lisbon), clothes (many are borrowed but others are leased). The principal is the necessary material for the special effects: silicone, foam, fake blood, ink, prostheses, etc.
We would like to raise this amount until June to succeed in finalizing the project by the end of the year, so we can introduce this project to a publisher.
Note:30 euros commission for PPL + VAT.
