Watermark - Talk with the artist

Free admission

In "Watermark" Carla Rebelo evokes the transitory nature of this place.
Guided tour by the artist

Suspended at the altar, multiple threads sketch memories over what we see. Superimposed like watermarks, the lines contour a kind of ballast of time refusing to pass. Carla Rebelo intertwines these textile drawings, creating an irregular sculpture, arising from the restored church's incomplete form or from fragments from elsewhere.

Rock, dust, bone, light are the threads the artist uses to weave a fabric of historical notes and common stories in this installation with an almost ethereal texture, that evokes the shape of a vault (formerly beneath the altar), of a plan or of the map drawings for a city diluted by water. Under the brightness of the Baroque architecture, the artist highlights the transitory nature of this place.
