UNTITLED (INDIVIDUAL EXHIBITION)
Iron rods, mirror and wire, 1450 x 4000 x 3200 cm, 2015.
Exhibition in Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa, Lisboa, Portugal, 2015.
Through this project I showed an installation produced during the year-
residency in Carpe Diem Arte e Pesquisa. Throughout this period, I got
interested in specific attributes particular of the location that raised
questions in relation to time, space and absence. The starting point of
this artistic exploration was triggered by the absence of the tiles that
once covered the walls of the palace. The only evidence left from the rich
decoration of Marquês de Pombal's ostentatious home, was the grid
made out of these abscent tiles and the surrounding windows facing the
garden. The crossing of this geometrical absence caught my attention.
By building a structure made of steal rods - materials usually employed
in civil construction - and employing mirrors, the memory of this tiles
came to existence giving the room a new dimension.
