Mulheres d'Apolo, 2010
Mulheres d’Apolo [Apollo’s Women] is a video by Vasco Araújo produced in 2010 for the exhibition Mais que a Vida [Larger than Life] – Vasco Araújo / Javier Téllez, held at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation the same year.
The women that appear in the video attend the matinees of the Alunos de Apolo [Students of Apollo] Philharmonic Society, in Lisbon, and took part in this production at the artist’s invitation. Vasco Araújo’s text, inspired by Euripides’ Greek tragedy The Trojan Women (415 BCE) – which relates the tragic destiny of the women of Troy – is narrated by the voice of Lúcia Sigalho. But this voice is performed by the artist himself, as revealed at the end.
There is a series of fundamental themes, constantly approached in Vasco Araújo’s work, that are prominent here: solitude and desperation; our own construction of an identity, real or fictitious, dependent on the power of human relationships; and even the social circumstances of a minority perfectly portrayed in these anonymous middle-aged women.
