The exhibition answers this question by showing its multiple dimensions: the concept of cultural space and ancient Mediterranean lifestyle, an intangible cultural heritage passed down from generation to generation and its social and religious aspects, sacred foods and their symbologies, the products of the sea and land that support a diet of excellence recognized by the WHO – World Health Organization. The central focus is the territory and the multiple heritage of Tavira, the testimonies of the presence of civilizations of Antiquity, the cultural landscapes and products of the Ria Formosa, the productions of the barrocal and the mountains, the festivities and cultural practices that underlie the choice of Tavira as a representative community of Portugal in the application of the Mediterranean Diet to Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity presented in March 2012 at UNESCO headquarters.

Kateryna Ilchuk is a Ukrainian artist who came to Portugal to take a master’s degree in tourism economics, continuing to live in Portugal until now. In addition to working in the field of scientific research, she makes works of art in her spare time. Kateryna’s paintings, made in acrylic, oil and watercolor, are extremely realistic. Each work takes several weeks, or even months, to be completed. She believes that the paintings are capable of conveying positive emotions and giving vital energy. The determinism for the contrasting colors and the attention to detail make up his original art style. The works in this exhibition belong to a photorealistic style.

The exhibition invites a closer look and does not miss any detail. These detailed works constitute an original collection, which pays homage to the architectural heritage of Portugal and the Algarve, in particular.

“OUSADIAS IV – IN THE ROUTES OF SURREALISM”, by Manuel Rodrigues Ribeiro “It is through automatism or the impulses of inspiration, that all values ​​are renewed, not only aesthetics, but also those of science, philosophy and morality.
