Daniel Barroca verkent verschillende manieren om met objecten of afbeeldingen en hun historie om te gaan. Door het beeld te verstoren, te laten rijpen of te manipuleren, voegt hij filters toe die de vergane tijd weergeven. Barroca is al vanaf het begin van zijn opleiding aan de kunstacademie geïnspireerd door het fotoalbum van zijn vader, met afbeeldingen van de Portugese koloniale oorlog in Guinee-Bissau. Onlangs realiseerde hij zich dat zijn blik op de Portugese koloniale geschiedenis bijzonder Eurocentrisch is en vervolgens heeft hij zich verdiept in Afrikaanse kunst, objecten en rituelen. In zijn huidige werk verdrijft Barroca het verleden door objecten te confronteren met een rijk scala aan media en modificaties.

Daniel Barroca explores different ways of dealing with objects or images and their history. By obstructing, conserving or even attacking the image, he adds filters that point out the time that has passed. The photo album by his father, with pictures from the Portuguese colonial war in Guinea-Bissau, has inspired Barroca ever since he started studying art. Recently he realized that his perspective on Portuguese colonial history was very Eurocentric, and he started developing an interest in African art, objects and rituals. In his current work, Barroca exorcises the past by confronting objects with a rich variety of media and alterations.
