|View of the installation component of “À procura de um outro corpo”, by photographer Luísa Ferreira|
À PROCURA DE UM OUTRO CORPO (“In search of another body” [free translation]) is a surprising photography exhibition that resulted from the photographer’s contact (in 1992) with a collection of sculptures by two local artists, Rosalina Passos e Joaquim Passos, active during the 20th century.
The photographs capture the artistic impulse of the pieces, a notable combination of contemplation, expression and torment. They are exhibited in two interior locations in São Brás (see below for details), joined by a short walk where an exterior installation with photographs accompanies the viewer though lesser known public town spaces. The opening weekend (Aug.1-3) installation was also walked by a mysterious cloaked female figure. Overall, amazing!
Texts and production by Graça Passos, the exhibiti will be on display until October.
