Place of Being

The exhibition at Palácio da Independência shows figures who can be either still non-existent beings or human remnants, already lost from human’s memory, but still existent. This young art comes to remind us how ephemeral our presence in the world is and how this may not necessarily mean death. This art is not speaking about the dead, it is as if it told us that from this energy something will remain and that world still has a place for unknown entities who need not necessarily be terrible creatures.
