 Exhibition “Bringing the essential into being(s)” by Jens Mohr Schedule: Monday to Friday, from 10AM to 01PM, and from 02PM to 06PM Patent: until September 30th Local: LAC – Laboratório Actividades Criativas Free entry Bringing the essential into being(s): “If someone asks me what the international artist Jens Mohr actually does with his art, I can only think of one answer: he makes “beings”. First of all, this has a tangible meaning: because what is created here is a host of literally peculiar, sometimes elusive, but always strangely familiar looking pictorial beings. The crucial point in Jens Mohr’s work on beings, however, lies deeper; it refers to the philosophical depth dimension of this “artistry of essence”: for the essence of a thing is the cardinal, the true, which of its own cannot be seen forthwith, but can express itself only in the embodied surface of things. The essence is at the same time that which as if from the depth of an invisible centre, combines all visible parts on the surface into a meaningful entirety.” – Jens Mohr 2020

Three artists, from different countries (United Kingdom, Germany and Portugal), born in the 80’s, their vision in relation to artistic work, yours and that of your peers. The exhibition consists of sculpture, photography and video. They are hybrid works where the artists present their work at the intersection between the various established techniques. Tom Saunders’ photographs are ready made interventions that aim to create a narrative. Martim Brion’s photographs focus on the plasticity of the object, on the use of different supports, from photographic paper to large canvases with color prints. In sculpture, Martim Brion and Silke Weiβbach work on a perception of color in the object and its shape, indicating a strong connection to painting and aiming to subvert the form in order to criticize the current state of the art and its manifestations. On video, the works of Saundres and […]

Between 1996-98 he carried out many works in stone, marble and granite for public and private spaces in the Algarve / Portugal. Inspired by the works of Antonio Gaudi and Andy Warhol, he changed his style in 1999 to broken tiles and discovered a new world of art. Since 2000, his sculptures and portraits have led to several successful exhibitions across the country. Fragmented Worlds: Welcome to a world made to be broken, Where time and past meet and where the present shapes the future, Where different perspectives lead to divergent conclusions, Where polarized interpretations create segmentation, strife and conflict, Where individual freedom is sacrificed on the altar of postmodernism. Welcome to the lands of ambiguity, Where faith and reason are harassed in favor of a “common good”, Where the security spectrum has become the new god of our age. Welcome to a brave new world When everything is changing and at […]

Patent from September 18th to October 30th | 10:00 am to 6:00 pm (3rd to Saturday) Location: Lagos Cultural Center – Room 0 Free entry 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. “We can understand the expression as a bolder action, attitude or thought, outside of commonly accepted standards, which involve certain risks, more or less conscious, and which, in succession, end up being […]
