Artist, CIAC collaborator, exhibits in Lisbon
The exhibition dans l’eau dormante, on se repose, opens on June 02, at 6:00 pm, in Lisbon, with works by artist and CIAC collaborator Edgar Massul.
In dans l’eau dormante, on repose, the artist continues the project he began in the Ria Formosa and now focuses on the southern banks of the Tagus estuary.
In these works by Edgar Massul, paper finds and absorbs the matter the Tagus has carried along its course. In the words of José Luis Porfírio, “this is not a confrontation, rather a loving encounter between bodies where the recording of an act, itself, is part of that same act where the artist’s studio is transported to the site, while in this same site some matter is also collected that will later be placed on the paper in an alluvium transformed into the page of a book, which, by express designation, the artist entitles as a love story (Tejo, to love story book, 2015).”
We invite you to see dans l’eau dormante, on se repose at the Galeria Giefarte, in Lisbon, from Monday to Friday, between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and in the afternoon, between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., from June 02 to July 31.
