Francisco Rodrigues (b. 2001, Funchal, PT) is an a̶r̶t̶i̶s̶t̶ working across video, performance and installation exploring the relationships between technology , queerness, and the internet . He is inspired by wrongness, randomness, pop culture and the surrounding socio-political conditions. Devilishly sly and mischievous, Rodrigues’s work focuses on themes around identity, depravity , trash, appropriation, fetishization , and perversion 𓀐𓂸. He approaches these subjects by editing gathered content collected from the web, from archives, and from his living. Fact and fiction get pulled in unpredictably playful ways, as the line between documentation and narrative blurs. Seemingly disparate objects are put in a blender and the resulting amalgamation is consumed but also regurgitated mid-digestion in an experimental exercise of rejection and filth . Horizons are abolished , objects are morphed, meaning becomes c̶̡̥̰͓̘͓̊̀̓ố̸̱͖̇̄͐͠d̴̥͚͙̪̈́̒̊̍̕ͅè̸̹̃d̶͖͉̙͆͛̍̂̊͝ . Burning/stomping/tearing/undoing - on a perpetual loop.
