Muamba Grove Performance by Vanessa da Silva

Event: Saturday 28 September 2019, 18.00

Galeria Duarte Sequeira is pleased to announce the launch of the Sculpture Park programme with invited artist-in-residence Vanessa da Silva. In collaboration with Braga-based dance company Arte Total, the artist will present a performance that will take place on Saturday, 28 September at 18:00.


Taking into consideration the intersection between the human body, nature and transmutation, Vanessa da Silva produces a new body of work for the sculpture park, further developing her Muamba Grove series. Within these works, the artist explores the relationship between object and body, body and nature, that in turn unfolds an extended narrative between object and viewer. Colour and scale play a significant part within the works. Through the exchange that occurs between the sculptures and human bodies, da Silva continues her ongoing investigation on themes of movement of cultures, transformation and ‘becoming other’.


Performers: Gabriela Barros, Inês Pereira, Carolina França, Carolina Vieira, Maria Inês Silva, Armando Pinho, Maiju Karhu


Choreography: Cristina Mendanha
