Tirsa, the sculpture from Robert Schad that now includes the collection of MIEC, metaphorically addresses the time lapse between visual perception and reality conformation. An indeterminate and symbolic time that can only be measured by its quality. A strong metallic structure that dialogs with the most iconic architectural element from the previous Santo Tirso Factory – the “chimney pipe” – made of lines that aggregate and fragment into fluid and erratic conveniences, drawing paths marked by intersections, inflections, new ways and meanings that suggest passages and moments, formalizing a timeless dimension. The piece, with strong formal depuration, takes a choreographed metric, structuring a language that develops a system in which the artistic practice is, fundamentally, understood as composition, as if it were a dance. It assumes a defiant and unpredictable balance that convey an intense rhythm that incorporates a spiritual dimension based on patrimonial and identity references of great historic significance.
