With some fixation on Art in Prehistory, the artist uses the most varied techniques without obeying the rules in the act of creation. She has her own style without worrying about the result, offering to each of her works a character of simplicity, purity and ingenuity, inspired by stories, myths and forms.
In the exhibition “A Brincar com o Fogo”, Adelaide Filipe goes beyond the limits of risk by joining iron and clay, two materials in different stages – one dead material, the other living material. From iron, which she has been collecting over time, she creates unlikely associations with clay and ventures new forms that reveal her fascination for stories that come from remote times. Her pieces bring together an unusual genuineness and singularity and take on the organic aspect that the earth gives them, bringing together unique shapes found by chance.
