Narrative about Permanent exhibition with help by International Artists - Green Tea Coffeeshop

A simple John Doe

Sometimes I get tired since I'm not a machine, but I love to dwell within my dreams and my memories.
Sometimes I don't know what to write while thinking on what's permanent until the end of this world.
 I know that people love adventures, I also love adventures and try to be some sort of adventurer with both my feet on the ground.
 Organizing this exhibition wasn't easy, thinking about this narrative was a complete brainwash since I must feel my heart, soul and body in sync while curating the exhibitions that I've exhibited all over the world.
 Everybody knows that I love books and that I love to read and write about stories (be them fictional/real or with or without artworks in them) so I've thought on taking pictures of samples of amazing artworks from the best artists in the world that are part of them and were part of others that I've curated in the past and will certainly be in others in the upcoming future.
 These artworks samples were randomly chosen and one can see in them international artists that I love a lot as truly gifted artists and human beings and that I consider my friends in this road that we call life and to whom I owe a lot.
 This video link of british band Depeche Mode with Dave Gahan's words are for all of you awesome artists that support some of my ideas


I feel you
Your sun it shines
I feel you
Within my mind
You take me there
You take me where
The kingdom comes
You take me to
And lead me through Babylon

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love
I feel you
Your heart it sings
I feel you
The joy it brings
Where heaven waits
Those golden gates
And back again
You take me to
And lead me through oblivion

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your precious soul
And I am whole
I feel you
Your rising sun
My kingdom comes

I feel you
Each move you make
I feel you
Each breath you take
Where angels sing
And spread their wings
My love's on high
You take me home
To glory's throne
By and by

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love



 I've decided to put in all the pictures a cigarette box of mine with Portuguese tiles that I love a lot, a lighter, an ashtray and a picture of the main character of westworld tv series Ford with this quote "dreams mean everything. 
They're the stories we tell ourselves of what could be, who we could become."

 I've thought on the concept of mankind, of feelings like love, friendship, family, pets, memories with past, present and future colliding themselves into one.
 I also love to see things in movement.
 Narratives are hard to describe, they involve dreams, reality, emotions in the human brain, heart and soul like in the excellent TV Series Westworld that I've previously mentioned with a quote.
 The following british Radiohead's song describes a bit with Thom Yorke 's words what I think about the word permanent and life.



 "Life In A Glass House"

Once again, I'm in trouble with my only friend
She is papering the window panes
She is putting on a smile
Living in a glass house

Once again, packed like frozen food and battery hens
Think of all the starving millions
Don't talk politics and don't throw stones
Your royal highnesses

Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
Well of course I'd like to stay and chew the fat
Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
But someone's listening in.

Once again, we are hungry for a lynching 
That's a strange mistake to make
You should turn the other cheek
Living in a glass house

Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
Well of course I'd like to stay and chew the fat
Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
But someone's listening in.

I know and I always knew since I've started comunicating as a child and having memories.
Permanent is your health first.
Permanent is what you love.

Maybe I'm wrong and I don't know what the word Permanent really is, but sometimes I get a bit lost like Mourinho was when he was battling for relegation zone in the premier league after Leicester defeat game with Chelsea at Stamford bridge like he mentions in the video below, because of some problems that he had with a doctor.




I'm a simple John Doe that was born in Porto and Mourinho's the best soccer coach in the world with tons of money and even him had problems being in a relegation zone.

Some people tell me to be careful with what I write and I always answer them that I try to write about facts and what I believe in be it in published books or in a mere blogue like this one.
