to Aug 15 | ART | Cristina Ataíde. Embodying the void | Belém | FREE to €5

April 5 - August 15

Cristina Ataíde’s work has been, for many years, one involving a variety of materials and approaches, but the ones that struck us about this show are a) the color red b) the use of data c) mountains. It’s the best we can do without spoiling the fun, but in short, go — it’s one of the best shows in Lisbon currently on view.

From the organizers:

“For the last three decades, Cristina Ataíde’s work has been a steadfast exploration of the intersections between drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, video and site-specific intervention. Her production reveals a thirst for experimentation and a fascination with discovery anchored in the experiences of travelling, in searching for different thought systems and in researching the expressive possibilities of matter. Indeed, her works are often associated with the experience of the different places and moments, as well as with the experiencing of a spirituality shared with the objects and entities that she encounters.

The exhibition Embodying the void features a set of works that span various interlocking periods and media which, however, do not convey a chronological or retrospective gaze. Presented as a web of relations that intersects references which are transversal to the artist’s production, the exhibition enunciates the connection between individuals and the environment (reinforcing the dialogue between geography and culture), the nexus between travelling and knowledge (accentuating the link between discovery and identity) and the relationship between spirit and matter (speculating on the varied spectrum of states of existence).”
