When Art Speaks Architecture:Building, Unbuilding, Inhabit

Curatorship: Delfim Sardo

At various times, in a world that has been successively destroyed by global conflicts, art has reflected the need to think about the meaning of dwelling, the affective construction of space, the cocoon, and the minimum conditions required for survival. In many ways, art seems to be speaking of architecture, constructing fields that are almost nameless in the place where sculpture, film, and architecture intersect.

The exhibition aims to present works which are located in this intermediate space, and which stem from the need to work with the deconstruction of space and the appropriation of architectural languages by artists in a way that also tries to find corresponding movements, with a diverse range of origins, in this interface.
