Conversations with Artists and Curators - Watermark

Free admission

Artists, essayists, curators hold a round table discussion about the purpose of the exhibition

Artists, essayists, curators hold a round table discussion about the purpose of the exhibition. A variety of opinions deepens the interpretation of the works and journeys of the artists, relates contemporary artistic contexts and practices to the modern-day, with the themes handled by the artists featured.

 

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.

With Carla Rebelo, Leonor Nazaré, Maria João Gamito e Manuel Valente Alves
