Galeria Francisco Fino is delighted to announce the opening of Mané Pacheco's Bestas, September 15th, at 10 PM.
In Bestas, Mané Pacheco creates post-extractivist monsters that dream in parallel with the folk wisdom, popular and mythological imaginary, transversal to various cultures. In these myths, creatures and entities carry ancestral ecological knowledge through generations, cooperating with those who care for, and punishing those who violate the contract of the forest.
Teaching, haunting and seducing are the tools of the beasts to keep the equilibrium in the field of human extraction. If one is not keen to follow their guidelines and knowledge, madness and chaos will follow right away.
