Now and Then
Now and Then is a curatorial work with Alexandra Sousa and Rui Prata, made from personal works. A kind of time puzzle that now gathers. Front to obviousness. Now and then it’s about faith and hope. About the now of faith and the ideation of hope. It’s a view about a situation gather in an imaginary map. Faith and hope cross like paths of different latitudes that, in spite they don’t coexist in time, they occupy a same space. Part of the colective exhibition of the “Dear Sir” agency called We Are All Made Of Scars.
