Vídeo três canais HD, 6'20", cor, som. Three-Channel HD Video, 6'20", color, sound.

“Take Care” pretende entender e retratar a tristeza inesperada e o sentido de perda nas nossas vidas. O trabalho é composto de afirmações e imagens de personagens ficcionadas, representando um tempo na vida de alguém. Histórias intermitadas com flashbacks, como os múltiplos fragmentos da memória de vida. As imagens que se sobrepõem no tempo mostram que o bem e o mal da vida podem co-existir. Os percalços e amarguras podem-se traduzir em sofrimento, mas também podem ser um ponto de partida para descobrir o que é a felicidade.

“Take Care” attempts to grasp and portray unexpected sadness and sense of loss in lives. The work is composed of statements and images of fictional characters, representing a certain status of one’s life. Stories are interspersed with flashbacks, just like those multiple fragments of memory of life. Images overlapping in time show that the good and the bad of lives might exist at the same time. Those minor mishaps and sorrows could be an affliction, but also be a starting point for you to find what happiness really is.
