THE JOURNEY OF ROOM 53
Ana Vidigal, Igor Jesus, Karlos Gil, Nuno Nunes Ferreira, Vasco Barata
The exhibition’s title conveys an idea of journey, of transitoriness in time, dealing with the archive in terms of the working processes of the artists featured in the exhibition. Memory as a temporal correlate that actualises itself in the exhibited works leads us to their archive (sensu lato), and their imagination, a rich and subjective field of intimacy, where affections may disclose distinct forms of (dis)arranging our ideas and our view of historical connections that sometimes strike us as anachronistic.
