JOÃO TREVISAN
DESCARRILHO (“Derailing”)- by Bené Fonteles
João walks along the rails next to his road. Between worn wooden sleepers; tracks and pieces of abandonment, worn out and rusted… The passage of time brings poetic structures that illuminate and hold on to his senses in a voracious search that is not only aesthetic. In truth, it is so much more!
In his notebook, visual and textual annotations are very well woven into the drawings and concepts, as well as presenting us the knowledge of the dense strength of wood and iron that he collects in his curious walks to welcome the “tension between two points”: balance vs imbalance; the bendable vs the unbendable, in infinite dispositions between visible and invisible beings.
The structural articulations drawn with the same care of the graphics in his drawings point out that weight, density and lightness dialogue with space and matter, proposing a coexistence with mutant forms and a challenging look from those who are attentive and can do more than just see it.
João’s intuition and erudition weigh the same, linking matter to poetry with property and accuracy. He pays attention to this body of matter that suffers with time and that runs not only along the iron surface that gets heaviness and tension from the train, that runs twice a day carrying not only the load to its destination. It also carries what every eternal boy watches from within his imaginary world, and that cannot be articulated by passion and words alone.
I remember that Milton Nascimento, as a good Mineiro, drew, as a boy, a train on the tracks in the sun of Geraes, and uses it as a symbol of his records.
With similar passion, João professes the alphabet of his memory of destinations, hitches and wastage to format his consequent ephemeral unbendables with scientific precision.
I walked with them one late afternoon on these neighboring tracks and I could witness their enlightenment in these matters, without which a unity cannot be formed from art and life.
Wood and iron, loneliness and courage, matter and impermanence give shape to a singular work that wants and thinks of mutability, as the train that articulates malleable and musical, full of rhythms in its cars, balancing itself elegantly, voracious and fleeting over rails, tracks that never end …
João is already wise in this poetic art of the infinite / finite, in balance and tension, so he has the wisdom of eternity, here in this present moment!
