Conceptual. Experiential. Critical. Historiographical. His artworks constantly shape-shift. The same pluralistic approach for his established dramaturgical pratice. In Gomes researching may be emotionography, conterquestion, imagination, curatorship. His sprawling series of events, meanwhile, are as sociological as they are immersive. Each particular event is an invitation to share concrete space-time situations, and live in an open ending narrative.
