Route designed for crossing the sea and river.

Salvador - Morro de Sao Paulo - Gamboa - Camamu Bay / Goió Island - Maraú - Tremembé

Salvador .png

I left Salvador early in the morning, by sea, on a catamaran to go to Morro de São Paulo​.

There I was ready for another adventure. A suitcase with the necessary things to be on a boat, little clothes, notebooks-diaries, made especially for the trip in partnership by di.Versa;  and materials to draw, paint and record the days that would be on board. In the support campaign , several partnerships emerged, among them, going as a commissioner registering for the EAGER JOURNAL an online platform, created by Ross Belfer, which presents original photo essays taken exclusively in film photography formats by collaborators worldwide.


Each residence is unique. For those who don't know it's an art residency, basically it's about going to live an experience for a certain time, in another place, it can be an artist's studio, a gallery, museum, in the countryside, or why not, on a boat.  

 

In the words of others:

“A residency experience can generate a reflection, an adoption of new paradigms in the artist's creative production, without necessarily generating an object, a product at that historical moment. The residencies function both as incubators of initiatives, aesthetics, reflections in contemporary art, as they can mean oxygenation or a new injection of spirit in the arts, knowledge and traditional practices.”

The artist residencies are:
• Organized and sufficient time, space and resources
• Activators of the creative process
• Reflection of its lexical meaning as "an act of living in a place"
• Based on clear mutual responsibility, experimentation, exchange and dialogue
• Engaged with context connecting the local to the global
•Crucial for the arts ecosystem

• Bridge mechanisms between different artistic disciplines and non-artistic sectors
• Tools for intercultural understanding and empowerment
• Essential opportunities for professional and personal development
• Catalysts for global mobility
• Encounters with the unknown
• Profile survey with immediate and ongoing artistic, social and economic impact
• Important contributors to cultural policy and cultural diplomacy

I left Salvador early on a sunny morning, traveled by sea, on a catamaran to go to Morro de São Paulo. Allí was ready for another adventure. A suitcase (manufactured by Candida Spetch ) with all the things you need to be on a boat, clothes, notebooks - diaries, bags especially for traveling by day;  y materials to draw, paint and record the days that would be on board.

During the campaign several partnerships emerged, among them, going as a commissioner  para EAGER JOURNAL, an online platform, created by Ross Belfer, which presents original photographic essays taken exclusively in similar photography formats by collaborators from all over The world.

Each residence is unique. For those who don't know what an art residency is, basically it's about living an experience for a certain time, otherwise, it can be in an artist's studio, gallery, museum, in the field, or why not, in a boat.

I arrived in Morro de São Paulo in the morning. Then I took a speedboat to go to Gamboa, the beach where the Mintaka and the Pirates of Love were anchored. The Mintaka is a one-masted boat capable of comfortably receiving and sleeping 6 people. The pirate captains of this vessel are Captain Brok, artisan inventor, DJ, seamstress, cook and the person in charge of the safety of everyone on board, he is originally from Liechtenstein; o Cris (as we all call it) is a being com incredible ideas and projects. It was a pleasure to sail and daydream. His other projects are:  ideenkanal.com | schaffarei.at

​Where to Anchor? It was my first question when I got on the boat. Knowing where and how to anchor is an art that requires presence, precision and courage. Here's an inspiring podcast from the pirate Arraia, talking about da AN-courage.

We left in the morning with light rain from Gamboa beach. It was my first crossing on the high seas sailing in a sailing boat. On the way out we had to sail with the engine for some time, the wind was against and the tide was too. Entering the high seas, we started sailing. Feeling of being in an immensity of deep blue freedom. The silence of sailing with the wind is music that remains in the body.

The body loses the reference of balance and for it to come back, we have to stare at the horizon; that utopia I so longed for was there for me, calming me down. Watching the horizon during a crossing on the high seas soothes the soul and the body. I lay down a few times, but I didn't vomit. Going to the bathroom was astral hell, everything went around inside me. 

The crossing was magical, between conversations about books, films and possible projects. Before leaving, I braided each crew member's hair, holding everything tight to be present at sea.  

We were finally entering Camamu Bay at 4:40 pm, with gray rain clouds and the orange-pink sun setting over the water.

Cosmic Jellyfish sang to their sea songs and we all smiled to be there living this adventure together. The magic exists.

We anchored in the middle between the island of Goió and some other mangrove land. We celebrate our arrival, amidst laughter and plankton in the sea-river. Conquer the world with love. Love piracy.

We left early in the morning, under the rain, from Playa de Gamboa, it was my first crossing on the sea, sailing on a sailboat. On the way out, we had to sail with the motor, the wind was overturned and the sea also. When we set sail on the high seas, we start sailing with sail. Sensation of being in a deep blue expanse of freedom. The silence of navigating with the wind is music that remains in the body.

The body loses the balance reference. So that you have to look at the horizon; this utopia that so much anhelaba was there for me, reassuring me. Observing the horizon while sailing on the high seas, calm the soul and the body will return to its center. I lay down a couple of times, but I didn't vomit. Going to the bathroom was an astral hell, all the rage inside me.

The cross was magical, between conversations of books, films and possible projects. Before departing, we train the hair of each crew member, keeping it firm and firm to be present at sea. Finally, we were entering Camamú Bay at 4:40 pm, with gray clouds of rain and the pink sun setting over the water.

Aguaviva cósmica sang its songs from the sea and we all smile for being present living this adventure together. La magic exists, it dwells among us.

We anclamos in the middle between the island of Goió and some other manglar. We celebrate our arrival, between laughs and planktons in the sea. Conquer the world with love. Piracy of love.
