Ana Cardoso writes: “Acts are for Actors refers to abstraction as a process or capacity that reveals an ongoing performance in every object, material form or diagram. An artist is an actor. The works in the show have in common the fact that their presence is revealed as a fact of material manipulation and time convergence. They are all residues of actions and meta-actions. As Stella Adler used to say, ‘We are what we do, not what we say.’”
