Do Bolbo ao Tapete

Do Bolbo ao Tapete

Throughout the 16th century, Europe’s extensive relations with the world reshaped its knowledge of nature. New products and previously unknown plant and animal species were brought to Europe from the West and East Indies. Seeds and bulbs of exotic flowers were brought from the Levant.

Sara Bichão. Find me, I kill you

Sara Bichão. Find me, I kill you

The exhibition is born of an intense personal experience that led the artist to question herself: as a singular identity, with her own body, and as a part of a whole. Sara Bichão relates the panic she experienced in a volcanic lake when, swimming alone, halfway across the crater, she realised she was right in the middle of it.

Aimée Zito Lema. From Conflict to Conviviality

Aimée Zito Lema. From Conflict to Conviviality

The work of Aimée Zito Lema (b. 1982, NL) touches upon memory, records and the inter-generational transmission of events through material history and the human body. Placing aesthetic and social practices side by side, her work inhabits a universe in which the material and the human interact in critical relationships.
