WITH FEET IN THE CLOUDS, by António Alonso Patent from April 2 to May 21 (Tuesday to Saturday | 10:00-18:00) Location: Centro Cultural de Lagos – Exhibition halls 2 and 3 Free entry António Alonso was born in Angola in 1960. He lives and works in Barão de São João, in the municipality of Lagos. As a plastic artist, he works with recyclable materials in experimentation.

The identification of one subject with the other, feeling, desiring or learning like him, seeking to understand him through speculation or sensation and the most extraordinary and complex emotional competences. Because empathy is not compassion, sympathy or simply pity. It’s not exactly about being able to walk in someone else’s shoes, because this walk is not exempt from the prejudices and stereotypes we carry. Empathy can be seen as the understanding of the social self from a combination of outside-in and outside-out looks, without comparisons or projections resulting from personal experience. The exhibition aims to affirm an active path, where the interdisciplinarity and plurality of the selected works help to design a […]
