Locus of Flight, by António Jorge Gonçalves
The illustrator speaks about the project for the hoarding that protects the renovation works to the CAM building.
A comic strip creator and illustrator, António Jorge Gonçalves was invited to develop a project for the hoarding that protects the renovation works to the CAM building and the extension of the Gulbenkian Park.
For this first work, in place on Rua Dr. Nicolau de Bettencourt, he devised a series of 23 drawings which, based on the flight of the mallard, a species that is particularly well-adapted to the Park’s ecosystem, links to the present day the different periods, uses and events relating to this public space in Lisbon. This graphic narrative resulted in a book of the same name, Locus of flight.
