WORKS
Rites of Passage

Exhibition at Casa do Corpo Santo, a difficult but suggestive baroque space, curated by Fernando António Baptista Pereira, where Sofia Arez presents a collection of works with a very interesting plastic and symbolic maturity. The works represent and disguise the forms in an exacerbating tempest of chromatic and pictoric values, without easy concessions or shocking colouring. In this way her works present to the observer the question of the ritual changing of forms (pictoric and human). At the same time, when observing them we are obliged to reflect on the conflict between tradition and innovation as a result of the surprising quality of these innovative works.
